Dr. Marcus Hanwell visits the group

Dr. Marcus D. Hanwell from Kitware, Inc. is visiting the group today. Marcus is a Technical Leader in the Scientific Computing group at Kitware, where he leads the Open Chemistry project. Open Chemistry focuses on developing open-source tools to for chemistry, bioinformatics, and materials science research. He completed an experimental PhD in Physics at the University of Sheffield, a Google Summer of Code developing Avogadro and Kalzium, and a postdoctoral fellowship combining experimental and computational chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh before moving to Kitware, Inc. in late 2009. He is still a core developer of Avogadro, a very popular,

Dr. Peter Limacher visits the group

Dr. Peter A. Limacher from McMaster University is visiting the group for a couple of days. Peter is a postdoc in the Group of Paul Ayers where he works on geminal and reduced density matrix methods. It is great to have him over to Buffalo (it’s just a short way from Hamilton after all) and we are very excited that he’ll give a seminar on the 28th titled “Pair-only coupled cluster from a viewpoint of geminal wave functions: Accurate bond dissociation curves at MP2-like computational cost”. Funny enough, it’s Peter’s first proper visit to the US, so welcome to the
