My Chem/Biochem

Sophya Garashchuk Group Site

Welcome!  Our quantum dynamics group is developing theory and methodology suitable for simulations of large molecular systems influenced by quantum mechanics.  

We are interested in quantum effects in dynamics of nuclei such as protons and deuterons and are developing the approximate quantum trajectory dynamics approach scalable to hundreds of atoms while incorporating the zero-point energy, quantum tunneling, and other quantum effects into simulations.

We always welcome motivated students, from pre-college to postdoctoral, interested in the fundamental level understanding of chemical and physical processes.  You will learn how to think, come up with and formulate a theory, how to program and use computational chemistry software and our unique group codes. In research we use LINUX desktops, computer clusters and supercomputers.
