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 materials.
