Prof. Stefan Vogt Geisse

Dr. Vogt Geisse did his undergraduate study at the Pontificia Universidad Católica, where he obtained his Licenciatura degree in the year 2008. He completed his PhD studies in the University of Georgia at the Center of Computational Quantum Chemistry in the year 2013. Afterwards he was awarded a Postdoctoral FONDECYT Fellowship: Elucidating the Polylactide Ring Opening Polymerization Mechanism of Novel Main Group Catalyst

Prof. Esteban Vöhringer-Martinez

My main research field is computational reaction dynamics, where we study how the environment is able to catalyze a chemical reaction or induce the binding of specific molecules. We apply molecular dynamics simulations with well-parameterized force fields or electronic structure methods in the QM/MM approach to study chemical reactions and interactions in biological systems as enzymes.
