Our research study focuses on the study of proton and electron transfer reactions in photosynthetic systems. Various Computational techniques will be employed that provides the rationale for molecular processes in photosynthetic and biological systems. The methods include classical based Monte Carlo based continuum electrostatics study, Molecular Dynamics, and quantum-based methods.
