Professor of Chemistry
Lena Simine is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at McGill University. She received her PhD in 2015 from the University of Toronto, did postdoctoral work at Rice University, and launched an independent group in 2019 at McGill University. The Simine group works at the intersection of theoretical and computational chemistry, biophysics and materials science. By combining traditional computational techniques with novel artificial intelligence and machine learning methods, it aims to tackle difficult and impactful problems in intellectually exciting ways. Her research is currently supported by NSERC, FRQNT, NRC and CFI-JELF. She is a member of the IVADO-funded research team "AI for Materials and Molecules Discovery".
