Tamás Rozgonyi is a physicist graduated at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary in 1993. He started his Ph.D. at the József Attila University of Szeged and continued his studies at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena (in Germany), from where he recieved his Ph.D. degree in 2003. Then he returned to a permanent position at the Chemical Research Centre (now at Research Centre for Natural Sciences) in Budapest. In March 2018 he joined the Femtosecond Spectroscopy and X-ray Spectroscopy Group in the Wigner RCP as senior research scientist.
He is a theoretician working in the field of femtochemistry. He studies ultrafast electron- and structural dynamics in ground- and excited electronic states of molecules via quantum dynamics- and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. He is experienced in high-level quantum chemistry including various multireference methods and time-dependent density functional theory. His main research topics are non-adiabatic transitions in molecules, strong field molecular ionization and light induced spin-state transitions and charge-transfer processes in transition metal complexes.
