    Summary Statement of Research Interests
    Professor Shakeshaft focuses his research on the study of the interaction of small atoms (e.g. H, He, H-) and molecules (e.g. H2+) with strong electromagnetic fields. His current research activity is the development of methods for representing the resolvent, and hence the wavefunction, of a few-body system on a real basis by analytic continuation in the time-domain.
