Research Interests

I am interested in the electronic and optical properties of organic semiconductor materials with potential applications to different areas of technology, such as organic solar cells and LEDs. Specifically, I focus on the theoretical understanding of the singlet exciton fission process in these materials, as well as its interplay with vibrational degrees of freedom. Understanding the quantum mechanical dynamics behind singlet exciton fission could lead to a next generation of organic photovoltaics with high efficiency.
