My research focuses on the development of new machine-learning frameworks to improve our understanding of complex materials and biomolecules. I’m particularly interested in the use of pattern recognition approaches to identify and clarify local and global patterns in materials, but also in the development of new machine-learning potentials capable of producing very accurate simulations at a fraction of the cost of state-of-the-art ab-intio methods.
Gerit receives the Young Investigator Award of the Sanibel Symposium, where he gave a plenary talk on Density Functional Theory including van der Waals forces. The international conference is organized yearly by the University of Florida’s Quantum Theory Project and is well known as the “Theory Meeting for Theoreticians”.
Congratulations to him!
Gerit Brandenburg recently joined the ICE group on a Feodor-Lynen research fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation. He will work in close collaboration with Prof. Sally (L) Price bringing together the expertises in state-space sampling and hierarchical electronic structure modeling for the project “Towards a New Paradigm in Molecular Crystal Polymorph Prediction”.
