Flaviu Cipcigan

Congratulations to Flaviu Cipcigan, who won the award for the best presentation at the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi". Flaviu presented work by the research group in which he is studying and his own PhD results.

The research group is working on a simplified quantum mechanical model for the water molecule, while Flaviu's PhD focuses on the development of this model and exploring its properties.

One of the School's industry-supported graduate students, Flaviu works with The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and IBM Research in the US. The research group is led by Prof. Jason Crain (Edinburgh/NPL) and Prof. Glenn Martyna (IBM), in collaboration with Dr Vlad Sokhan (NPL) and Dr Andrew Jones (Edinburgh/NPL).
