People behind this work

David van der Spoel David van der Spoel (Principle Investigator) studied engineering physics at the university of Groningen in the Netherlands. He defended a Ph.D. in computational chemistry with Prof. Herman Berendsen in 1996. After that he started as post-doc at the the department of Biochemistry, Uppsala University. He was appointed Professor of Computational Molecular Biophysics at the same university in 2008. David is the main original GROMACS developer.
Carl Caleman Carl Caleman studied technical physics at Uppsala University and got his degree in 2002. He then joined the biology department where he defended his Ph. D. in Physics, specializing in Molecular Biophysics in 2007 with Prof. Janos Hajdu. After this he was post-doc at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. From 2010-2012 he was a post-doc at the Center for Free Electron Laser Science, Hamburg Germany. Presently Carl is a group leader at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Upppsala University.
Paul J. van Maaren Paul van Maaren holds Masters degrees in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of Groningen (1994) and Chemical Physics from Brandeis University, Waltham/Boston (1996). He is presently working for an insurance company in Wales, U.K. Paul has contributed to a number of high-profile scientific papers over the years.
Mohammad Mehdi Ghahremanpour Mohammad Mehdi Ghahremanpour studied biology at Shiraz University in Iran. In 2014, he joined the institute of cell and molecular biology (ICM) at the Uppsala University as a PhD candidate in physics with specialization in molecular biophysics. He has been developing the Alexandria force field and its open access quantum-chemistry library under the supervision of Prof. David van der Spoel. He succesfully defended his Ph.D. thesis in May 2019.
