We are an experimental physical chemistry group working on single-molecule chemical dynamics. We develop new single-molecule- and single-nanoparticle-based methods for the study of complex systems. Our ultimate goal is to arrive at a level of understanding that affords a quantitative prediction of the dynamics and how they contribute to systems behavior.
