Martin Trappe has joined the lab as a new Senior Post-doctoral Research Fellow. Martin is a physicist with a background in quantum mechanics and density functional theory. He has worked as a post-doc for the last several years in the Centre for Quantum Technologies at NUS and will continue a 50% appointment there. In our lab, Martin will be working on mathematical models of environmental variance under our Singapore–Israel research grant and looking at applying some theoretical physics techniques to many-body problems in ecology. Welcome, Martin!
