Quantrell Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching: Gregory Engel
Gregory Engel focuses his research on leveraging precise theoretical predictions to predict, identify, and characterize conical intersection structures, with the ultimate goal of rationally controlling photoreactivity. His research group intends first to employ laser spectroscopy to watch the reactions, then to invoke theoretical modeling to understand the data and to locate new substrates.
