Rod Macrae

I am an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Marian University, Indianapolis. I received both my bachelor's degree and my PhD from the University of Glasgow, in Scotland. My primary research interests are in applications of theoretical chemistry (including but not limited to quantum chemistry) and spectroscopy. I have a particular interest in the chemistry of the light hydrogen isotope muonium, formed by implantation of positive muons into matter. Other interests include trapped atoms in solids, applications of exactly solvable quantum systems, hyperfine interactions in free radicals, and models of the photodynamic effect.

My role in the Institute for Green and Sustainable Science centers on issues related to sustainable methods of energy generation, energy transformation, and energy storage. Additionally, I maintain this web site.
