Drew Rohskopf

Drew Rohskopf is a PhD student under Asegun Henry at MIT. His research interests involve predicting how molecules move and interact, and how these interactions influence chemical, material, or biological phenomena. His PhD thesis involved (1) improving the speed & accuracy of molecular simulations by producing quantum-accurate potential energy surfaces, and (2) a formalism for simulating vibrational energy transfer in solids, leading to a new physical picture of phonon transport. In the CESMIX project he develops interatomic potentials to aid more accurate molecular simulations, and is also involved in developing software for next-generation molecular simulation platforms.
