Research Information

Research Overview

Biological molecules

My main interest is the study of optical response and natural and induced optical activity (circular dichroism and magnetic circular dichroism) on molecular systems. Excited states and charge transfer processes in complex biological structures with technological interest as photoelectronic devices (solar cells, bio-nanowires) using Time Dependent Density Functional Theory.
