Dr. Shroll is a Senior Technical Fellow who joined SSI in August 2002. His previous research activities have been in the areas of condensed phase classical molecular simulations, molecular energy transfer dynamics, and electronic structure theory. He has developed new methods and models for performing classical simulations as applied to biological and geological systems. His studies of energy transfer were applied to the Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium problem in atmospheric gasses using the techniques of quantum scattering to determine vibrational relaxation rate constants. He has also investigated theoretical electronic excited state energy gradients for use in excited state dynamics. He is now working in several areas including chemical dynamics, atmospheric compensation, and hyperspectral imaging.
