Instructor

Professor Lev Sarkisov

Hello! My name is Lev, I am Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Manchester. At the University of Manchester my group specializes in molecular simulations and multiscale modelling in application to carbon capture, energy storage and other challenging problems.

Here is an example of our recent publication and a link to my research group web site: 
This program is a result of several years of teaching Thermodynamics and Molecular Thermodynamics courses at the University of Edinburgh. I wanted to find a way to explain some of these topics to the high school students interested in how interactions between molecules govern the world around us. We hope it will spark your interest in this field.

Instructor

Dr. Dmitry N. Lapshin

Hi! I am Dmitry, a Research Associate in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. My research employs molecular simulations to design new materials and processes to address carbon capture, energy storage and other challenging problems.

Here you can find my recent publications: 
This course is a result of my passion for teaching of university and high school students. Being a teacher at a school and scientist at university for over 10 years, I understand that inspiring students and providing them with necessary support is vital for sparkling and keeping interest in STEM. With this in mind, we developed The Ensamble program.
