Research efforts encompass the disciplines of chemistry, physics, materials science, and computational science, including the electronic structures and spectra of metal and semi-conductor clusters, molecules and complexes comprised of heavy elements, vibrational analysis, polymer/surface interactions, radiative processes, and surface phenomena. Large scale computing, code development, and code implementation are ongoing. Applications codes for atomic and molecular electronic structure calculations and molecular vibrational-rotational analysis have been published and are maintained. New developments in relativistic pseudopotential theory and high-order perturbation theory of molecular motion are applied in large-scale computational studies encompassing the characterization of lanthanides and actinides in chemical waste, substrate/polymer interactions, heavy metal compounds, surface interactions and fullerene structures and spectra.
