Nanna Holmgaard List

Principal Investigator

Nanna Holmgaard List is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Theoretical Chemistry and Biology at KTH Royal Institute of Technology since September 2021. She holds a B.Sc. in Chemistry (University of Southern Denmark, 2010), a M. Sc. in Interdisciplinary Science Studies (University of Southern Denmark, 2012) and a Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry (University of Southern Denmark, 2016). Previous to joining KTH, she was a VILLUM postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University (2017-2021). Nanna’s research interests lie at the intersection of chemistry, biology, molecular physics and computer science.

Pratip Chakraborty

PostDoc

Pratip Chakraborty received a dual Bachelors and Masters degree in 2015 with a major in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali, and a Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry in 2020 from Temple University, Philadelphia. Pratip was a postdoctoral associate at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, before joining KTH. His previous research ranges from investigating gas phase nonadiabatic dynamics of excited state chemical processes to understanding the molecular-level picture of interfaces relevant to Saturnian Moon Titan. Pratip is always interested in exploring new avenues in theoretical and computational chemistry, and will be working on developing and using theoretical tools for simulating multidimensional spectroscopies.

Rafael Couto

PostDoc

Rafael Couto received a Bachelors (2011) and Masters (2013) in Chemistry from the Federal University of Goias, Brazil. In 2016, he was awarded a double-degree PhD in the Theoretical Chemistry from both Federal University of Goias (Brazil) and Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden). With postdoctoral positions at KTH, Uppsala University and Stockholm 
University, his research was related to electronic structure calculations and quantum wave packet dynamics to model x-ray spectroscopy and non-adiabatic wave packet dynamics in polaritonic photochemistry. Currently, Rafael’s research is focused in the development on techniques for non-adiabatic dynamics of complex molecular systems.
