The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MolSSI) is a nexus for the computational molecular sciences (CMS) community by providing software expertise and infrastructure, education and training, and community engagement and leadership. This talk will outline the challenges that the CMS community faces in developing software and the ways that MolSSI is meeting those challenges. In addition, ways to connect into the MolSSI activities will be discussed.

BIO: Develops new methods and algorithms for high performance computational chemistry as well as applying those techniques to both basic and applied research. Her current application interests are rare earth and heavy element chemistry, catalysis, aerosol formation, cellulose degradation, and photochemistry. Much of her research interests involve large, collaborative efforts between scientists in multiple fields working together to solve difficult scientific challenges.
