Time-resolved nonlinear spectroscopy and coherent-control

Over the past decades, multidimensional spectroscopy has proven to be a unique tool to investigate structural and dynamical properties of complex molecular systems such as peptides and proteins. My work focuses on using molecular dynamics simulations combined with quantum-chemistry calculations to simulate infrared time-resolved nonlinear spectroscopy such as 2D-IR. This work has been extended to simulate the interaction with intense laser pulses used for example in coherent control and vibrational ladder climbing experiments and to predict the spectroscopic signature of non-equilibrium systems.
