The time-dependent formulation for Raman scattering was developed jointly with Eric Heller, together with an early implementation of time-dependent vibrational wavepacket propagation in photodissociation. Later, a more general time-dependent formulation of ultrafast nonlinear optical spectroscopy using Feynman dual time-line diagrams in Liouville space was developed with Richard Mathies, W. (Tom) Pollard, and Professor Zhigang Sun. He collaborated with Donghui Zhang on first principles study of elementary chemical reaction dynamics. While time-dependent quantum mechanics underpinned much of his research, Soo-Ying also took an interest in fast chemical analysis of foods using laser spectroscopy and thermal analysis. In particular, his group solved some centuries-old myths on edible swiftlet bird's nest - a much prized food in Chinese cuisine.
