My Research Interests

I am interested in quantum effects in biological systems and their potential applications. I have studied natural and artificial molecular light-harvesters, in particular, the role of electronic-vibrational interaction in energy and charge transport. I am currently working on potential quantum effects in organic solar cells where coherent vibronic effects, which have been widely studied in quantum biology community, seem to play an important role.
