Adam Kirrander

Chemical physicist with a passion for theory. My first area of interest was biophysics, but I quickly fell in love with how quantum mechanics can tell us what molecules, atoms, and electrons get up to. Now I try to contribute to our ever more sophisticated understanding of chemical dynamics. You can also check out a brief CV on LinkedIn, or my staff-page at the University of Edinburgh. Most of my papers are listed on Edinburgh Research Explorer and Google Scholar. Feel free to contact me!
