Michael Bearpark is a Principal Research Fellow in the Chemistry Department at Imperial College London. His research interests are in computational chemistry, including method and software development with applications to modeling the excited electronic states of large molecules and their photochemical reaction dynamics. He has contributed to the development of the Gaussian computational chemistry codes and his experimental collaborators includes laser spectroscopists working on the coherent control of chemical reactions.
