James P. Cryan

I am interested in photo-induced dynamics of atoms and molecules. I am particularly interested in the dynamics of excited states in these systems, and how energy transfer takes place inside a molecule. The relevant timescales for these interactions is typically in the range of attoseconds to picoseconds. These dynamics include photo-triggered chemistry such as non Born-Oppenheimer molecular dynamics and quantum phenomena in strong-field driven systems. I also develop tools for studying these dynamics in the time domain.
