June 7th, 2019
Q-Chem Advisor and developer, Prof. Martin Head-Gordon, of the University of California at Berkeley, has been elected to the Royal Society of the UK.
Congratulations to Q-Chem Advisor and developer, Prof. Martin Head-Gordon, of the University of California at Berkeley, on being elected to the extremely prestigious Royal Society of the UK.
Posted citation reads, "Head-Gordon has advanced quantum chemistry in three critical components - theory, algorithms, and software. This includes major advances in foundational quantum mechanical wavefunction methods, practical density functional theory and the interpretation of quantum chemical calculations. His contributions have provided deep insight and inspired new chemistry experiments in areas ranging from reaction mechanisms to catalysis to astrochemistry. He has also stewarded software development that has put the latest quantum chemistry methodology into the hands of specialists and non-specialists alike. The synergy between all of these directions has made Head-Gordon a modern leader in quantum chemistry."
