Andreas W. Goetz is a research scientist in the Data Enabled Scientific Computing division at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), University of California San Diego, where he leads a research group in Computational Chemistry. He received a PhD degree in Theoretical Chemistry from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany in 2005. Before joining SDSC he did postdoctoral research in density functional theory embedding methods at the VU University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. His research combines methods of quantum mechanics, classical molecular mechanics, statistical mechanics, and data science for simulations of molecules and materials. His developments are integrated into the widely used parallel and GPU accelerated ADF density functional theory code and AMBER molecular dynamics simulation package.
