Postdoctoral research fellow

I am a postdoctoral research fellow developing machine learning models to study photoplasmonic catalysis since Oct. 2020. My main goal is to enable computationally efficient and accurate nonadiabatic dynamics simulations by decoupling the costs of accurate quantum chemistry calculations from the dynamics simulations. Therefore, I aim to fit potential energy surfaces, forces, and related properties (dipole moments, nonadiabatic coupling vectors, electronic friction tensors,...) of molecules and materials based on first principle reference data.
