Research Interests
Using a variety of theoretical and computational techniques, we study various aspects of the dynamics of atomic innershell phenomena. In particular, we are interested in radiative phenomena and those involving the rearrangement of atomic electrons as a consequence of nuclear decay or a collision process. The focus of this research is the role played by correlations and the influence of relativistic and QED effects.
