We work on the theory of molecular quantum optics and open quantum systems. Current projects focus on the study of coherence and entanglement with molecular systems, and on the microscopic mechanisms that effect the quantum-to-classical transition of their states. Our interests thus range from mathematical aspects of decoherence theory to the the quantitative description of state-of-the-art experiments.
