Professional Interests

My professional interests involve the use of computational chemistry methods to understand chemical phenomena: the molecular structure, the reactivity, the reaction mechanisms, the spectroscopy, the excited state properties, the biological and material properties. My research also intends to combine theoretical and experimental endeavors to unveil the physical laws behind modern chemistry.
