Expert in Materials Characterization via Solid State Diffraction and Computer Simulation
Expert ID: 720860 Louisiana, USA
Expert experience in computational chemistry includes theoretical chemistry (quantum mechanics), molecular modeling (interactive graphics and molecular mechanics), statistical modeling and data analysis, and chemical information storage and retrieval.
Expert is knowledgeable of computer simulation of molecules and computation of molecular and material properties. He directed research in computational chemistry, including molecular mechanics, quantum mechanics, and interactive computer graphics. He has worked with PC-based, mainframe-based, and network-based (PROPHET) systems.
Expert has worked for five years in designing databases for an industrial. He has used ISIS and MACCS.
Expert has been writing computer software since 1965 in a variety of languages such as FORTRAN, C++, BASIC, APL, ALGOL, etc. Much of this software has been for internal use, but has been distributed formally in some instances (e.g., the NIH PROHPHET system for biological computer modeling).
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: New Orleans, Louisiana - Baton Rouge, Louisiana - Lafayette, Louisiana - Kenner, Louisiana
