Dr. Sandra Quintanilla is an atomic theorist who studies various aspects of the three body Coulomb problem. In particular she studies positron collision, (E-2e) collisions, and Photon interactions. Positron collisions have important applications in many areas of physics such as solid state and astrophysics.
