Our area of research is the study of molecular physics. We are interested in developing experimental, theoretical and computational studies to describe the spectroscopy and multielectron dynamics of molecular systems. Specifically, we study electron scattering from molecules and in particular the formation of scattering resonances that may lead to the dissociation of the target molecule. Further experimental studies explore the electronic state spectroscopy using electron scattering and photon absorption. Theoretical studies also include study of positron interactions with molecules.
