NorthResearch Group

Group Members

We are a group of physical chemists interested

in undertanding reactivity and energy transfer

at a molecular level to develop and refine

predictive models. We welcome  interested,

enthusiatic, graduate students, undergraduate

students, and postdoctoral associates join us.
