Martin Mosquera

For my undergraduate degree I obtained a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from la Universidad del Valle, Cali, Colombia. My love for quantum mechanics made me pursue a Ph.D. in Chemistry at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, under the spiritual and mystical guidance of Prof. Adam Wasserman. As a postdoc in the groups of Profs. Schatz and Ratner, I work in topics ranging from energy science up to high level, divine, ab initio theory. Currently, I study silicon chemistry for nanotechnology and the application of ab initio methods (including time-dependent density-functional theory) for multi-photon processes in gas and condensed phases. In my free time I enjoy playing guitar and soccer and applying my knowledge of multi-dimensional spectroscopy to auto mechanics.
