Andrew Gilbert, Ph.D.


Research Scientist  

Dr Andrew Gilbert obtained his Ph.D degree from University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom under the supervision of Prof. Peter Gill. In 2001 he took a postdoctoral research position in Professor Jonathan Hirst's group at the University of Nottingham before rejoining Peter Gill's group at the Australian National University in 2004. There he worked as a research officer until 2017, after which he joined the Q-Chem team.

Dr. Gilbert is a key developer at Q-Chem, and in 2015 developed and released IQmol 2.6, a state-of-the-art molecular viewer software package that has become the recommended GUI for Q-Chem.
