CRC 235 welcomes Prof. Christian Ochsenfeld

Prof. Ochsenfeld will work on Project 12 with Prof. Oliver Trapp


CRC 235 welcomes Prof. Christian Ochsenfeld from Faculty for Chemistry and Pharmacy, LMU on board. He will replace Prof. Ville Kaila (who recently relocated to Stockholm University) on the project P12, collaborating with Prof. Oliver Trapp.

Prof. Ochsenfeld's expertise is molecular dynamics, especially large scale quantum mechanical calculations solving the Schrödinger equations with efficient scaling on graphics card clusters. He has worked already on various biological systems, including DNA repair and is interested to learn about opportunities to apply his methods. His approach fundamentally differs both from force field and DFT calculations and he will be happy to describe and probe its advantages in future collaborations.
