Dr. David Cheung is a Lecturer in Biophysical Chemistry in the School of Chemistry, University of Galway. Prior to this he was Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, University of Strathclyde and a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick.
Dr. Cheung began his academic career at the University of Durham where he worked in the group of Prof. Mark Wilson. Following this he performed postdoctoral research at the University of Bielefeld (in the group of Prof. Dr. Friederike Schmid) and University of Warwick (in the groups of Prof. Michael Allen and Alessandro Troisi) before beginning his independent career.

I am a senior staff scientist at the Institute of Nanoscience and Materials of Aragón, within the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and I am affiliated to the Department of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Zaragoza.
I hold a Laurea (Bachelor’s degree) from the University of Camerino (1996) and a joint PhD degree awarded by the Universities of Leiden and Zaragoza (2001). I worked at the University of Leiden (2001–2004) and the CNR Institute of Nanoscience in Modena (2004–2009), before joining the Institute of Nanoscience and Materials of Aragón as a "Ramón y Cajal" CSIC Fellow. I tenured as a CSIC scientist in 2010, becoming senior scientist in 2017.
I am an experimental physicist with a keen interest in caloric materials and in the development of advanced instrumentation.
I am a computational chemist and data scientist and group leader at AstraZeneca. My research activities all share the motivation to bring the power of computational chemistry to new chemical problems in pharmaceutical research and beyond, to fundamentally understand properties and functions of organic molecules, to reveal hidden chemical questions and to promote solutions for chemical challenges and focus on the development and application of efficient and transferable computational techniques and workflows.
Past and present research involved multi-disciplinary research in the areas of reactivity prediction, catalysis, biotechnology, bio-organic, colloid, and radical chemistry, molecular self-assembly and supramolecular chemistry, ion effects, and molecular electronics in organic electronic devices.
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, first as an EU and UoN funded fellow, then as Assistant Professor in Biotechnology and Computational Chemistry. In September 2022 I joined AstraZeneca in Gothenburg / Sweden to work in predictive computational chemistry and data science within the Pharmaceutical Science department.
Mingda completed his B.S. in Engineering Physics from Tsinghua University in 2009, and his Ph.D. in Nuclear Science and Engineering from MIT in 2015. Before joining the department as a faculty, he carried out research as a postdoc associate at Mechanical Engineering Department of MIT. His research is to study the quantum and functional properties of materials using spectroscopic methods and many-body theory, particularly interplay with materials defects.
I am a physical chemist with expertise in statistical thermodynamics. My interests include enhanced sampling methods, liquid structure and dynamics, soft matter interfaces, astrochemistry, ion transport, and biophysics. I earned degrees from Oregon State University (BSc) and Boston University (MS, PhD), performed postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, and I am an associate professor at Northern Arizona University.
Dr. Matthew Powell-Palm is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering / Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M, working on matters of core materials thermodynamics, phase change processes, cryopreservation, and low-temperature aqueous physics writ large.
Michael Ruggiero is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Vermont in the United States. He received undergraduate degrees in chemistry and mathematics from the State University of New York (SUNY) College at Geneseo, and his Master’s and Ph.D. from Syracuse University, both in New York State. His doctoral work, performed under the guidance of Professor Timothy Korter, focused on combining experimental terahertz time-domain spectroscopy with ab initio density functional theory simulations, where he pursued the electronic origins of intermolecular forces in molecular crystals. Following a successful defense, he took up an EPSRC-sponsored postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, working with Professor Axel Zeitler in the Terahertz Applications Group. At Cambridge, his focus shifted to disordered molecular solids, with the goal of understanding the molecular dynamics responsible for solid-state crystallization of amorphous drugs. After almost three years in Cambridge, Ruggiero went back to America to take up a position of Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont, where he is currently combining theoretical simulations with experimental spectroscopy. His work is highly interdisciplinary, sitting at the intersection of chemistry, physics, pharmacy, materials science, and computer science, and as such he is a heavy collaborator with groups from around the world.
I am an Associate Professor in Computer and Information Sciences at Northumbria. I received my PhD degree in Mathematics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interest is in complex networks and systems.
