I am interested in the spectroscopy of reactive molecules, such as radicals, as well as loosely bound molecular complexes. Species present in the atmospheres of Earth and other planets, and how these species interact, are of particular interest to me, as the chemistry occurring in space can often inform us about the chemistry occuring in or around our own world.
I am currently looking at the bonding of molecular complexes between sulfur and nitrogen-containing species via matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy.
