Dr. Isaac Vidal Daza is an external advisor on high-throughput supercomputing from the University of Granada. He obtained his BS and PhD in Chemistry at the Universidad de Granada. His research has been focused on the study of the chemical bonding using the Quantum Theory of Atoms in Molecules (QTAIM) and the Electron Localization Function (ELF), with special application to the chemical bonding in carbon-metal complexes for early transition metals. He has also extensively contributed to the study of carbon nanotubes, and protein-ligand interactions. He is currently working on electronic transport in nanomaterials and ML applications in chemistry.
