We are a computational and theoretical physical chemistry group with broad interests in dynamical processes occurring at the nanoscale. We are particularly interested in developing new methods to probe and control the behavior of matter by means of external stimuli, a topic that we like to refer to as “Molecules Under Stress”. Research in our group is interdisciplinary in nature, typically at the interface between Chemistry, Physics, Optics and Nanoscience.
