Work in the field of computational photochemistry, using multireference ab initio method and time-dependent density functional theory to study the photochemistry and photophysical processes of molecular excited states and their applications.
Research interests include:
(1) Theoretical research and design of light driven molecular motors and switches;
(2) Chemi- and bio-luminescence mechanisms;
(3) Luminescence and quenching mechanism of fluorescent dyes.
