Restoring the Balance: Accurate Treatment of Intra- and Intermolecular Interactions in Conformational Polymorphs

Gregory Beran was born in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.  He studied chemistry at the University of California San Diego (B.S. 2000) and went on to earn a Ph.D. with Martin Head-Gordon at the University of California Berkeley (2005). After two years of postdoctoral research in Chemical Engineering with William H. Green at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he started as a faculty member at the University of California Riverside in 2007.  His research focuses on the development and application of fragment-based treatments of molecular crystals and electronic structure methods for non-covalent interactions.
