Quantum-Classical Dynamics at the University of Alberta

Gabriel HannaOur research encompasses a variety of problems, but a common thread connects them: the decomposition of a system into a subsystem of interest and its environment, followed by the study of the influence of the environment on the dynamics and spectroscopy of the subsystem. We take a mixed quantum-classical approach to modeling, in which the subsystem is treated quantum mechanically while the dynamics of the environment is described by classical mechanics. Our interests lie in the development and testing of novel mixed quantum-classical methodologies and their application to the spectroscopy of chemical and biological problems of fundamental and technological importance.
