Pablo Baudin

During his studies, Pablo Baudin contributed to the development of state-of-the-art computational models for describing large molecules (with a few hundred atoms). The developed models provide approximated solutions to the central equation of quantum mechanics (the Schrödinger equation) for the electrons of a system. Particular attention was given to the description of electronic transitions which can arise as a result of light-matter interactions. Providing an accurate description of such processes in large molecules is of utmost importance in many scientific fields, such as molecular biology and material sciences.

The PhD degree was completed at the qLEAP Center for Theoretical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
