Research in Computational and Theoretical chemistry
Dr K.H. Hughes was previously a Ramsay Memorial Trust Research Fellow at Bangor and his research concerns development of theoretical and computational methods in the quantum dynamics of large complex systems and their application to key areas of chemical interest: e.g. laser driven quantum control, reaction dynamics and charge transfer processes in nano-sized systems. He has a burgeoning theoretical activity on molecular wires and diodes which complements the experimental studies on molecular electronics.
