Research interests:

  • Photophysical and photochemical processes in molecules (light-induced reactivity, non-radiative deactivation)
  • Role and influence of solvents in (photo)chemical processes (solvatochromism, solvent-dependent fluorescence)
  • Development of combined quantum-chemical/electro-classical approaches (QM/PCM, QM/MM)
  • Efficient computational modeling of organic-inorganic perovskites, specifically CH3NH3PbI3
