Tamar Seideman

Professor / Joint with Chemistry

PhD, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, 1990

Professor Seideman's main research interest is in the area of theoretical and computational molecular physics and chemistry. Her current research centers around: 1) molecular electronics, current-driven nanochemistry and new forms of molecular machines; 2) coherence phenomena in the gas phase and at interfaces; 3) the interaction of matter with intense fields; 4) photomanipulation of external and internal molecular modes; and 5) the development of new mathematical methods.
