My Research Interests

My current research interest focuses on first principle simulations of exciton and charge transfer dynamics in biological and organic structures. Currently, the aim of my research is to simulate the exciton absorption and the consequent charge transfer in solar cell heterojunctions with organic blends. In addition, I am still involved in developing methods for studying the influence of environment vibrations on excitation energy transfer in light-harvesting complexes of photosynthesis systems.
A slightly different discipline of my research involves the optical properties of 2D materials.
