Gas Phase Chemical Physics

A Brief Biography
Martin Head-Gordon has been at the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, since 1992, and has been a Faculty Chemist in the Chemical Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory since 1994. At Berkeley he was promoted to Associate Professor in 1997 and Full Professor in 2000. His awards include a 1993 National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship (1995-7), a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship (1995-2000), and the 1998 Medal of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences. Prior to joining the Berkeley faculty, Dr Head-Gordon was a postdoctoral researcher at AT&T Bell Laboratories, where he developed unique electronic structure methods for calculating nonadiabatic energy exchange between molecules and surfaces. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1989 from Carnegie-Mellon University, working with Professor John Pople on molecular orbital methods for large molecules. Head-Gordon's research program centers on the development of new electronic structure theory methods, and their implementation as efficient computer algorithms. He is an author or co-author of over 120 scientific publications, and has presented over 60 invited talks at major scientific meetings and research universities.
