Have you ever wondered about how to best model an absorption spectrum for a molecule in solution? How to account for vibronic and environmental effects? Our tutorial review has appeared (finally!) in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry!
Working with UC Merced Professors Erik Menke, Hrant Hratchian, Michelle Leslie, and Ben Stokes, along with Dr. Lynn Reimer, we plan to implement and assess a variety of new approaches to teaching and learning chemistry at UC Merced. Learn more about it here and here and here.
