We develop statistical mechanical methods to study molecular motions and dynamical processes including reaction kinetics, transport, and spectroscopy.

Research Focus

The dynamics of molecules in condensed phases control phenomena ranging from biological processes to the course of liquid phase chemical reactions to the mechanical properties of materials. We develop theoretical methods for interpreting and predicting the properties of bulk matter that arise from molecular motions. A principal research area is the development of semiclassical approximations to  time-dependent quantum mechanics with application to multidimensional vibrational and electronic molecular spectroscopy.
