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!
Two physics graduates have joined the group! Felix Heijnen joins us from KU Leuven in Belgium to pursue an Erasmus mundus MSc degree, and Oskar Leinonen joins us from Chalmers Department of Physics to pursue his MSc thesis. Both Felix and Oskar will be working on quantum chemical calculations on quantum computers. Welcome!
Please see details and apply here.
Our hard work extending the validity of the periodic table to high pressure has earned a press release from Chalmers!
