General Information Purpose:
The aim of our computational chemistry studies is to solve chemical problems with the methods of theoretical chemistry.
Goals: 
1)Theoretical design of molecules which are used as sensor, PDT sensitizer, photoconductive materials
2) Exploring the self-assembly behaviour and morphology of oligomers and gels.
3) Investigations of the reaction mechanisms
4) Producing QSAR models 
Research interests:
- Quantum chemical investigation of the interaction phthalocyanine molecules with volatile organic compounds
- Computational protein engineering investigations
- The investigations of self-assembly behaviours of oligomeric surfactants and gelators by Dissipative Particle Dynamic Simulations
- Theoretical studies on the sensor, PDT sensitizor, photoconductive properties of phthalocyanine molecules
- Exploring reaction mechnism: organic, photochemical
- Molecular modelling of chiral separation mechanism
- QSAR, QSRR studies.
