Main Research interests

- Formation of complex organic molecules (COMs) in the star-forming regions, comets and meteorites : study of radical reactivity (intermediary species) under conditions simulating those of interstellar ices, i.e. low temperature and low presure.

- Dynamics and photodynamics of molecular and atomic systems at low temperatures : relationship of conformational structure and electronic states with processes such as hydrogen transfer, tunneling, nuclear spin conversion, photoisomerization, intermolecular complex stability and solid lattice reagenments from both experimental and theoretical approaches.
