Gábor Csányi, Ph.D.
Gabor Csanyi is Professor of Molecular Modeling at the University of Cambridge. He received his batchelor degree in applied mathematics from Cambridge in 1994, and obtained his doctorate in computational physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2001 having worked on computational electronic structure problems. He was in the group of Mike Payne in the Cavendish Laboratory before joining the faculty of the Engineering Laboratory at Cambridge in 2007. He is developing algorithms and data driven numerical methods for atomic scale problems in materials science and chemistry. His particular focus is to extend the notion of first principles modelling beyond the length and times scales accessible by explicit electronic structure methods.
