Christof M Jäger
Following my undergraduate studies of Molecular Science I received my PhD in Computational Chemistry from the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany in 2010. I then worked as a Postdoc for the Cluster of Excellence Engineering Advanced Materials (EAM) until 2014, when I joined the Sustainable Process Technology (SPT)Research Group in in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Nottingham.
My research activities all share the motivation to bring the power of computational chemistry to new chemical problems, to fundamentally understand properties and functions of organic (macro)molecules, to reveal hidden chemical questions and to promote solutions for chemical challenges.
My research experience includes Molecular Dynamics simulations, semi-empirical Molecular Orbital Theory, DFT and ab initio methods and force field development. Past projects involved multi-disciplinary research in the areas of bio-organic, colloid, and radical chemistry, molecular self-assembly, ion effects, and molecular electronics in organic electronic devices.
In Nottingham my research focuses on the development and application of efficient computational approaches for their use in enzyme driven biotechnology in order to discover sustainable routes for manufacturing fine chemicals and novel antibiotic drugs.
