PEOPLE

 

Members of the CHOCO research team:

Project leader CHOCO
Assoc. Prof. Kathrin H. Hopmann
Kathrin is an expert on quantum chemical modelling of organometallic reactions, with emphasis on selectivity and on validation of mechanistic proposals through computational and experimental approaches (PhD 2008, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden). Besides leading CHOCO, Kathrin is PI at the Centre of Excellence Hylleraas Centre for Quantum Chemical Sciences, PI in projects iCCU and MarVal, and leader of NordCO2. Since 2018, she is Associate Editor of Organometallics.
