My leading project focuses on investigating dynamically-induced chirality in the gas phase molecules. With high-accuracy first-principles simulations of rotational-vibrational dynamics I am developing procedures for creating, manipulating and detecting dynamic chirality.
My research interests range from the nuclear motion theory of electronic excited states, through quantum electrodynamics of ultra-cold molecules, to fundamental concepts such as the geometric phase in Quantum Mechanics. My past projects focused on method development in quantum dynamics of molecules, including developing collocation methods for high accuracy calculations of vibrational and ro-vibrational spectra of molecules with 4-12 atoms.
