My group’s research focuses on enabling technologies for next-generation devices that leverage the unique optical properties of macromolecular and nanoscale materials. We primarily use ultrafast laser techniques to identify novel electronic properties and dynamical processes and to investigate their application in light harvesting and photonics applications. We have several projects related to artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels using both heterogeneous and homogeneous approaches, with an emphasis on understanding how the dynamics of the electron spin affects light harvesting processes. Our work aligns with the “Bio-inspired approaches to harvesting and conversion of energy” focus area of the NanoBioNYC program.
