Commenting on the effect of gravity on electrolysis (Swedish Radio)
Martin comments on a study that shows how gravity can affect the creation of oxygen from water. The original study can be found here.
Welcome Marco and Werner!
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.
Online Seminar “Understanding Atoms in Tight Places”
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 good highlight in ChemistryWorld
A nice pop-sci article summarizing our work on atomic properties can be found here.
Chalmers Press Release!
Our work dressing the connection between atomic energy, radius and electronegativity is highlighted in a Chalmers press release.
The bachelor group of 2021 joins the team!
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!
