Leanne Paterson

I started my PhD, within the theory group of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer research, in July 2016. My focus is currently on development of the Kinetic Monte Carlo algorithm, for electronic processes

I obtained my Master of Science degree, in Molecular science, at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, in 2015. My Master thesis was carried out at the Max Planck Institute for the science of light, in Erlangen. The focus of the thesis was a computational investigation of a composite nanostructured semiconductor, for the use as a water splitting photocatalyst.

I received my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in chemistry, from the University of Glasgow in 2011. My Bachelor thesis was concentrated within the area of computational chemistry, namely the comparison of canonical and local electron correlation descriptions, when considering small molecule binding.
