Theory Biomolecular Dynamics

Welcome to the Biomolecular Dynamics Theory group at the MBI (Theory Department T4):

Our research addresses the ultrafast structural dynamics of molecular and biomolecular systems subject to non-linear light matter interaction. We investigate arising nonadiabatic relaxation pathways and explore fluctuation induced decoherence dynamics in aqueous and biological environments. We thus aim at the development of novel simulation algorithms for the real time descriptions of quantum dynamics subject to a dissipative environment where in particular non-Markovian system-bath memory imposes persistent numerical challenges.

The developed algorithms are applied to elucidate complex biomolecular dynamics and associated time resolved spectroscopic observables in order to develop a microscopic view of fundamental reaction mechanisms.
