With: four visiting speakers
Place and room: SV 1717
Category: Conferences – Seminars

Computational materials design with machine learning and atomistic simulations


With: Rafael Gomez-Bombarelli is the Jeffrey Cheah Career Development Professor in MIT’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering. His work aims to fuse machine learning and atomistic simulations for designing materials and their transformations. Through collaborations at MIT and beyond, Rafael’s group develops new practical materials such as catalysts, therapeutic peptides, organic electronics or electrolytes for batteries. Rafael joined MIT in 2018 after earning BS, MS, and PhD (2011) degrees in chemistry from Universidad de Salamanca (Spain) and carrying postdoctoral work at Heriot-Watt, Harvard and at Kyulux North America. His machine learning work has received faculty awards from the Dreyfus Foundation and Google. Rafael was a co-founder of Calculario, a Harvard spinout company, and served as Chief Learning Officer of ZebiAI, a drug discovery startup.
