Our focus is understanding dynamics of excited states in condensed phase
systems. We are particularly interested in excitonic interactions in
low-dimensional and nanoscale systems including colloidal II-VI
semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dots, graphene quantum dots, and layered
materials. We also exploit the sensitivity of second-order nonlinear optical
processes to the breaking of inversion symmetry to probe systems where bulk
inversion symmetry is broken as at the surfaces of inversion symmetric
