Research Focus

We have been exploiting and developing x-ray techniques to test our understanding of fundamentals of photon - electron interactions in atoms and correlated electron dynamics in solids. 

We are also exploring cooperative behavior in microbial life as well as the intercellular signaling that facilitates it. 

One can find details of our current activities at .
