Mariano Spivak did a Master and PhD in Computational Chemistry from the Univeristat Rovira i Virgili in Spain. His research focused on transition metal chemistry using a diverse set of Quantum Chemistry methods, including ab-initio molecular dynamics. He was interested in the benefits of hybrid QM/MM methods for studying complex systems. He joined the TCBG group as a post-doctoral researcher in 2018, and he has been working in the implementaation of new features for NAMD QM/MM. In addition, he is working on VMD plugins for QM applications. This software developments are motivated by the study of proton transport in confined water through carbon nanotubes.
