Members of the CHOCO research team

Project leader CHOCO
Assoc. Prof. Kathrin H. Hopmann
Kathrin is an expert in quantum chemical modelling of organometallic reactions, with emphasis on selectivity and on validation of mechanistic proposals (PhD 2008, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden). Besides leading the CHOCO group and it various projects, Kathrin is leader of CO2PERATE and NordCO2. Since 2018, she is Associate Editor of Organometallics.
