Welcome to the Reppert research group! We work at the interface between chemistry, biology, and physics, focusing on the related challenges of

  • Using physical principles to understand biological processes
  • Using (micro)biological tools to interrogate and control physical phenomena.

To achieve these goals we use a variety of experimental, theoretical, and computational tools, emphasizing the development of quantitative connections between experiment and theory. Our special area of interest is photosynthetic light-harvesting. For more details and a complete publication list, visit the group website at .
