Marco Cappelletti and Werner Dobrautz has joined the group! Marco joins us from the University of Milan to pursue a PhD. He will work on astrochemistry and the challenge of understanding HCN polymerization. Werner joins us as a postdoctoral researcher from the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart. He will work on enabling quantum computation of chemistry in collaboration with IBM-Zurich.
This presentation at the Skoltech Center for Energy Science and Technology is an up-to-date summary of our research into atoms under compression. The 45 minute presentation can be found here.
A nice pop-sci article summarizing our work on atomic properties can be found here.
Our work dressing the connection between atomic energy, radius and electronegativity is highlighted in a Chalmers press release.
A warm welcome to this year’s Bachelor group, who have begun working on computational astrobiology.
Dr. Alvaro Lobato Fernandez have joined the group from University of Oviedo. He will help us expand upon our methods for analyzing chemical bonding, and use them to predict how chemistry can change under extreme conditions of pressure. Welcome Alvaro!
Dr. Kjell Jorner joins the team from AstraZeneca, as an affiliated postdoc researcher while stationed in Toronto. He brings in expertise in machine learning, among many things, and we are happy to have him on board!
Dr. Fernando Izquierdo Ruiz has joined us from the Complutense University of Madrid. He will be working on exciting challenges within Computational Astrobiology. Welcome!
