My research concerns the theoretical (quantum mechanical) description of molecules; the aim is to predict and explain experimental observations in chemistry. We focuses, in particular, on the dynamics of molecules in space and time. This includes new methods for predicting, detecting ("filming") and controlling the course of chemical reactions on atomic length- and time-scales
