In the quantum chemistry group at TIFR, we characterize the nature of “one-electron” in many-electron systems — ranging from atoms, molecules to materials — using ab initio theoretical approaches. This has direct implications towards understanding photoelectron spectroscopies and electron transfer process that are fundamental gateways to redox reactions, catalysis and solar-energy capture. Our research involves developing first-principles based theoretical formalisms, algorithms and computer codes that are tailored for modern supercomputers. We closely collaborate with experimental groups to tackle current problems in charge-transfer processes.
