Research Interests


Current Research Group

Former Group Members

Welcome to the Houston Research Group School of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technolgy. We educate students in physical chemistry and perform fundamental research concerning the dynamics of molecular processes. The availability of tunable lasers that can excite molecules from or to selected electronic, vibrational, and rotational levels has added a new dimension to the field of physical chemistry. Our research investigates how photodissociation reactions and bimolecular reactions depend on and produce particular molecular degrees of freedom. We are also using laser tools to investigate the electronic and optical properties of molecular materials and the structures and chemical properties of biofilms.

We have recently moved to Georgia Tech from the Department of Chemistry at Cornell University.
