My current research concerns the transport phenomena of elementary excitations in quantum dissipative systems, in particular, the optimization of excitonic energy transfer processes in photosynthetic pigment-protein complexes, namely the light harvesting complexes of LH-II B850 and LH-I B875 found in purple bacteria. My broader interests include all of condensed matter physics, in particular transport in quantum and semiclassical dissipative systems. I enjoy being a member of the APS division of condensed matter physics (DCMP) and the topical group on statistical and nonlinear physics (GSNP).
