A warm welcome to Jannik who has recently (re-)joined the MBM group.
Here are a few words from Jannik about himself:
Hi there! I am Jannik and I am doing my PhD in the MBM group. I will be investigating heterolytic versus homolytic bond breakage in collagen using molecular dynamics simulations and quantum mechanical calculations. Outside of my PhD, I enjoy bouldering and teaching data analysis with the programming language R. My most recent endeavor is learning to skateboard. You can find out more about me on my website: https://jmbuhr.de/
The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the 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 sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
