Dr. Dahnovsky is currently a professor in
the Department of Physics and Astronomy and an Adjunct Professor in the
Department of Chemistry. Dr. Dahnovsky was a Research Scientist at
the Institute of Chemical Physics at the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow,
the University of California at Santa Barbara; a Research Associate at
Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, University of Antioqua,
and Northwestern University.
Research interests are biological electron transfer
reactions, molecular electronic devices, nonlinear optical properties of
quantum heterostructures, dissipation of energy in large molecules, physics
of glasses, femtosecond processes, photon-assisted tunneling, and other
aspects of Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, and Biophysics.
