Dr. Panfili joined Spectral Sciences, Inc. in 2002 and is currently a Principal Scientist. His research activities include the modeling of high-energy molecular collisions, as well as the development of atmospheric radiance and transmittance algorithms for both lower and upper atmospheric conditions. Prior to joining SSI, Dr. Panfili’s graduate research involved classical and quantum mechanical modeling of the behavior of correlated electrons in the presence of intense femtosecond laser pulses.
