Xavier Rozanska, prior to joining Materials Design® in 2011, worked as Research Scientist in different countries and places. After receiving a master’s diploma in computer science and theoretical chemistry from France, he started his work on his Ph.D. degree in the Netherlands in 1998. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the Technical University of Eindhoven in 2002 and won the ASML Prize for applied research for his work on the ab initio analysis of the elementary mechanisms of reactions catalyzed by zeolite. For three years, he was a Humboldt Fellow and a postdoc at the Humboldt University in Berlin, where he carried out quantum chemical calculations on transition metal oxide catalysts. In France, he worked at the Universities of Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris and Henri Poincaré in Nancy and at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon. While there, he analyzed different bio-, organic, and inorganic chemical systems using static and dynamic methods at quantum and molecular mechanic levels. He authored and coauthored about 40 articles, conference proceedings, and book contributions.
