Michael Bearpark is Professor of Computational Chemistry and Director of Research Computing Engagement at Imperial College London. His research interests are in computational chemistry, molecular electronic excited states and photochemical reaction dynamics. He contributes to the development of the Gaussian computational chemistry code and his experimental collaborators includes laser spectroscopists working on the control of chemical reactions.
