Our group works on diverse fields of Chemistry. The primary field that we work on is the development of new theoretical approaches for Laser Assisted Control of Chemical Reactions and Resonances in Electron-Molecule scattering. Along with this our group is also currently doing research in the field of Biomolecular Chemistry as well as in Catalysis.

In the Biomolecular Chemistry, we are focusing on designing some drugs related to Alzheimer’s Disease and the interaction of the drug molecules with receptors. Some ground level work on protein folding has also been started. In the field of Catalysis, we are trying to design some catalyst for spliting water molecules photo-catalytically and also investigating the mechanistic and kinetic aspects of the catalyst.
