Teresa Head-Gordon, Ph.D.
Dr. Teresa Head-Gordon is the Chancellor’s Professor of Chemistry, Bioengineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. She is also a Sr. Faculty Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The research interests of the Teresa Head-Gordon lab embraces a large scope of science drivers through the development of general computational models and methodologies applied to molecular liquids, macromolecular assemblies, protein biophysics, and homogeneous, heterogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis. She has a continued and abiding interest in the development and application of complex chemistry models, accelerated sampling methods, coarse graining and multiscale techniques, analytical and semi-analytical solutions to the Poisson-Boltzmann Equation, and advanced self-consistent field (SCF) solvers and SCF-less methods for many-body physics. The methods and models developed in her lab are widely disseminated through many community software codes that scale on high performance computing platforms.
