The Coolest Job on Earth Exploring Ultracold Chemical Reactions – Dr Timur Tscherbul, University of Nevada, Reno
Algorithms are everywhere. From the targeted ads that flood your Facebook feed, to the split-second decision making of self-driving cars, they can be surprisingly simple or considerably complicated. At the University of Nevada, Dr Tscherbul and his research team are using algorithms to further our understanding of the exciting field of ultracold molecular dynamics. Their work is challenging the 100-year-old conventional wisdom surrounding chemical reactions.
