My Research Interests

My research interests include quantum effects in biological light-harvesting systems and their potential technological applications. In the past I have been working on energy transfer enhancement in a chromophore dimer due to the coupling between electronic excitations and some slowly relaxing environmental vibrational modes. Similar mechanisms could be in play in other areas of quantum biology, and could account for the ultrafast energy transfer dynamics in different biological or bio-inspired systems. At the moment my activity focuses on the modelling of quantum-enhanced exciton diffusion along quasi-1D arrays of light-harvesting complexes.
