Welcome Kevin!

14. June 2018

A warm welcome to Kevin who is visiting the group with a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He previously held a postdoctoral fellowship in the Materials Science and Engineering Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland and in August he will be starting a tenure-track position in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Dayton.

Kevin’s research interests include using MD simulations to study the structural and interfacial behaviour of nano- and bio-materials. He will be spending his time at HITS/ MBM using multi-scale approaches to examine bond scission in bio-polymers under tension.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
