The Ben May Center for Chemical Theory and Computation supports activities and infrastructure that promote the theoretical and computational science in the Chemistry faculty. The Center aims at upgrading the faculty computer infrastructure to support cutting-edge research, at serving as a hub of activity for diverse groups of scientists and at creating an intellectual atmosphere that exposes young people, i.e. students and postdocs, to the relevant science being done in the theoretical and computational groups at the Chemistry faculty and elsewhere in the world.


Prof. Eran Bouchbinder is a theoretical physicist who is interested in various non-equilibrium problems in condensed matter physics, materials physics, geophysics, and biophysics. His work aims at developing quantitatively predictive theories of diverse complex phenomena, and involves close collaborations with computational and experimental groups.
