Our group works in the broader field of Quantum Biology and Chemistry (QUBIC), at the interface of engineering, chemistry, physics, and biology. In the emerging field of Quantum Biology, we are developing molecular spectroscopy techniques and quantum-confined materials to provide transformative solutions for detection, diagnosis, and therapy. Our work in Quantum Chemistry is directed towards developing transformative nanoscale catalysts for solar-fuel generation using new nano-biohybrid organism (nanobugs and nanorgs), selective quantum-confined states of nanomaterials (hot-carrier photocatalysts), and other new physical phenomenon; and novel photon upconversion.
