Lauri Himanen

Doctoral Candidate

He received his master’s degree in engineering physics from Aalto University, minoring in computer science. His master’s thesis was a theoretical study of combined quantum mechanical and classical simulations (QM/MM) in ion-liquid solutions. After a brief excursion to a software company, he was hired as a full time Ph.D. student for the NOMAD project ( jointly in the groups of Prof. Patrick Rinke and Prof. Adam Foster at Aalto University. He can fluently move between multiple topics, including: computational simulations, development of scientific software, web development, visualization, and machine learning.
