Tamar Seideman Professor / Joint with Chemistry

Professor Seideman's main research interest is in the area of theoretical and computational molecular physics and chemistry. Her current research centers around: 1) molecular electronics, current-driven nanochemistry and new forms of molecular machines; 2) coherence phenomena in the gas phase and at interfaces; 3) the interaction of matter with intense fields; 4) photomanipulation of external and internal molecular modes; and 5) the development of new mathematical methods.
