Research Interests

Research in the Subotnik group focuses on the intersection of static quantum chemistry methods (especially for excited states) with nonadiabatic dynamics methods (specifically surface hopping). The focus is quantifying electron transfer, energy transfer, and electronic relaxation. Applications are to almost all photo-induced processes!
