My research is focused at the control of ultrafast light-induced processes and their dynamics in complexes with photovoltaic or photocatalytic application, via:
- controlling photodynamical processes by tuning the 3D nanostructure of the complex,
- using external stimuli such as plasmonic field enhancements.
Key techniques we use are ultrafast optical and x-ray absorption and photoluminescence spectroscopy to visualize light-induced processes in real-time.
