Andrei Duchko - new PhD Student joins CMI

10 October, 2017

Andrei Duchko joins the CMI Theory Team as a graduate student. His research focuses on fundamental properties of water: its physics and chemistry.

Andrei will study two types of weak interactions in water: nuclear spin effects and (hydrogen-bond) intermolecular interaction between water molecules. The research into the dynamics of small water clusters at vastly enhanced level of detail will improve our understanding of molecular hydrogen-bond interactions and solvation in general. 

He will carry out both theoretical calculations of the hydrogen-bond dynamics in small water clusters and high precision theoretical predictions of the nuclear spin hyperfine effects in water and small water clusters.

The research project is computationally oriented and resides mainly on the intersection of the theoretical chemistry and physics.
