Hsing-Ta (Theta) Chen


Theta is a postdoc in the Subotnik group. He received a dual B.S. in Mathematics and Physics at National Taiwan University, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics in 2016 at Columbia Universtiy under the direction of David Reichman. He was a postdoc fellow at The Sackler Center, Tel Aviv University, and a visiting postdoc at Stanford University. His works focus on developing approximate and numerically exact methods as well as analyzing the applicability of these methods for simulating energy and electron transfer dynamics in condensed phase systems. He is currently broadening the scope of his research to quantum dynamics in a variety of physical settings.

I obtained B.S. from University of Science and Technology of China in 2013. I am currently a graduate student in Subotnik group at Upenn. I am interested in chemical dynamics, specifically non-adiabatic dynamics at interfaces or in condensed phase.

Nicole Bellonzi

Grad Student

Nicole received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz. There she worked with Professor Yat Li, studying enhancements to hematite nanowire arrays for use as photoanodes for water splitting. She joined the Subotnik group in 2014. Her research interests include methods for modeling nonadiabatic dynamics and their applications.
