 Computational Physical Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry

Dr. Poutsma's research focuses on the application of computational methods to aspects of biochemistry and organic chemistry which cannot be studied experimentally. The majority of the systems are investigated by ab initio calculations (also known as quantum mechanical calculations) or molecular dynamics simulations.
