Dr Judith Rommel
Department of Chemistry
Dr. Judith B. Rommel believes that in future multiscale simulations of nanomaterials will enhance the design cycles of everything from drugs to airplanes and to nano-devices. Her research focuses on predictive multiscale simulations of bio-nano interfaces in materials design. Her special interest is quality control and risk assessment through uncertainty quantification, validation, and verification of multiscale scale and multiphysics models from electronic structure to atomistic and to coarse grained simulations.
She obtained her PhD in theoretical and computational chemistry from the University of Stuttgart, Germany in 2012. Then the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany, awarded her a Fedor Lynen Fellowship to conduct research at the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge. In 2015 she received a Knowledge Transfer Fellowship from the EPSRC for a joint research project with the company Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA. After her first degree, a German state exam in biology and mathematics (equivalent to a MSc), she taught full time for more than a year in an academic high school. She is a Research Fellow of St. Edmund’s College and at the Department of Chemistry.
