The Subotnik Group

Research in the Subotnik group focuses on the electronic processes in the condensed phase. Using tools from electronic structure theory (with an emphasis on excited states), nonadiabatic dynamics, perturbation theory, and statistical mechanics, we seek a comprehensive theoretical and computational platform for studying electronic relaxation, electron and energy transfer, and multilinear spectroscopy. See our research and publication pages for more information.

Our Research

Our research interests focus on finding the simplest theoretical tools to describe complex environments and phenomena, so that we can run practical simulations of large systems.
