Research

 

The Zuehlsdorff Group is a Theoretical/Physical Chemistry group in the Department of Chemistry at Oregon State University. We are interested in studying the optical properties of systems in complex environments, ranging from solvated dyes, to nanostructured materials and pigment-protein complexes. 

Our research focuses on improving computational methods for modeling excited states in the condensed phase (including methods specifically geared towards modeling large system sizes), as well as developing novel theoretical approaches to spectroscopy. Further information can be found on our research website.
