Research Interests

My research interests are focused on the development and application of high-accuracy electronic structure techniques in the areas of computational thermochemistry and spectroscopy, as well as the characterization of cation/ligand complexes. The goal is to be able to predict most experimental observables with as much accuracy as is required to solve chemically significant problems.
