GENERAL STATEMENT ON RESEARCH AREA(S)
My research group carries out research in the general area of computational chemistry. We use computer calculations to study the structures and energetics of small inorganic molecules and how they interact with biomolecules. We also investigate the mechanisms of reactions in which they are involved.
