Physical Chemistry

Research in the area of physical chemistry can be broken into Atmospheric Chemistry, Biophysics, Electronic Structure, Material Processing, Nanofabrication, Reaction Dynamics, and Surface Chemistry. Many of these areas involve a unique collaboration between experimentalists and theorists with the goal of understanding fundamental processes such as energy transfer in activated complexes, gain further understanding of fundamental reaction mechanism such as proton transfer in peptides.
