Where theory and experiment meet!

A central feature of our scientific research strategy is the combined theoretical and experimental approach we undertake to solve a wide variety of chemical problems from the molecular and materials world with real life implications.


Please review the representative skill and expertise list of the laboratory to learn about scientific, technical, training, and service opportunities we engage in.


Our overarching philosophy:


  "If you can sketch it - we can model it!"


let that be chemical structure, reaction mechanism, nanoparticle, periodic crystal, chemical property ...

Consider working with us!

Please visit us in Bozeman, give us a call, or contact us via email, if you are interested becoming the member of the lab. We always consider applications for postdoctoral research associates, graduate students, undergraduate students, and also high school students.
