Research Interests: Nanopolaritonics; spintronics; density functional theory.

We are interested in a theoretical understanding of nanoscale devices capable of controlling:

  • light (plasmonics, nanopolaritonics)
  • current (nanoelectronics)
  • spin (spintronics, spinbirefringence)

We use computer simulations to model the physical properties of various classes of nanosystems such as:

  • Combined plasmon/molecule systems
  • Extended poly-aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Molecular wire/ring systems bonded to heavy metals
