My research includes: Manipulation and study of molecules with short laser pulses: Orientation of molecules, ultrafast chemical reaction dynamics using femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy methods, and control of molecular conformations. The main activity is currently control and ultrafast imaging of molecules in helium nanodroplets, which is supported by an ERC advanced grant (2013-2018).
Currently my research group comprises 3 post docs, 4 PhD student, 1 master student, and 2 undergraduate students. In addition, we have an academic technician with an outstanding expertise in lasers and optics affiliated with the group.
I am involved in teaching at all levels in both physics, chemistry and optics. Also, I am the chairman of the PhD committee at the Chemistry Department.
