Massive participation of QUANTUMGRAIN in the ISM2021 Workshop

Massive participation of QUANTUMGRAIN in the ISM2021 Workshop

Most of the QUANTUMGRAIN members attended and participated in the Workshop in Interstellar Matter 2021, a hybrid event organized by the Naoki Watanabe’s Group of the Institute of Low Temperature of Sapporo (ILTS). Very interesting meeting.

Let’s see if next time we can attend in person!

Congratulations Joan!!!

Congratulations Joan!!!

Our member, Joan Enrique-Romero, has defended successfully his PhD thesis entitled «Surface chemistry of molecules of astrophysical interest: theory and simulations» in cotutelle and supervised by Cecilia Ceccarellia (Univ. Grenoble) and Albert Rimola (Univ. Autònoma de Barcelona). Great thesis, great defense and… great party afterwards!
