Our research interest focuses on the application and development of theoretical and computational tools for the study of chemical reactions in chemical and biochemical systems. Currently, we are developing theories of electron transfer in solutions and inhomogeneous materials, solvent effects on chemical reactions in condensed phases, solvation dynamics in protein environments, phase behaviors of metallic systems and theory of protein crystallization.
Here are some of the projects studied in our group currently:
• Solvation dynamics in protein environments and inhomogeneous models of proteins' dielectric response,
• Solvation dynamics in ionic fluids and an extended Debye-Hückel theory,
• Theory of protein crystallization and protein-protein interactions,
• Phase behaviors of metallic systems
