Welcome Rana!

A belated welcome to Rana Doǧan, an undergraduate student who joins us remotely from Boğaziçi University in Turkey. Rana is helping us to explore the prebiotic chemistry of hydrogen cyanide, while learning about computational chemistry.

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.

Welcome Siddhant!

Siddhant Sharma has received a Chalmers Astrophysics & Space Science Summer (CASSUM) Research Fellowship, and joins us as an undergraduate summer student from the University of Delhi! He will work on astrochemistry and the challenge of understanding HCN polymerization.

Welcome Alvaro!

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!
