Welcome to the Tao Research Group in the Department of Chemistry at SMU!

The research of our group focuses on developing highly efficient and accurate computational methods to calculate free energy for chemical reactions and biological processes. We are also applying these novel free methods in combination of powerful computational tools, such as molecular dynamics (MD) and quantum mechanics (QM), to solve real world chemistry and biology problems.
