Pre-LTU research, Magnus Gustafsson
From June of 2007 until August of 2014 I worked as an Assistant Professor
(forskarassistent) in Physical Chemistry
Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology of the
University of Gothenburg. I was a member of the local organizing
committee of MOLEC 2014.
From April of 2003 until May 2007 I worked as a postdoc with Rex Skodje in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado in Boulder. The research concerned gas phase reaction dynamics. We studied details of reactive collisions, such as the the role of rovibrational degrees of freedom, for few atom systems. Much of this work was carried out at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences in Taipei where I was appointed part of this time.
My doctoral work was done in the Department of Physics of the University of Texas at Austin. The area of research was theoretical atomic and molecular physics and Professor Lothar Frommhold was my supervisor. The focus of my thesis was specifically on the influence of molecular, rotational, degrees of freedom in collision-induced radiative processes.
I have also worked with simulations of reaction-diffusion systems at the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics at the University of Texas. Before moving to Austin in the fall of 1996 I worked with prediction of 3D structure in proteins using artificial neural networks at the Complex Systems Group at Lund University in Sweden.
