David Furman, PhD MRSC holds a joint appointment as the Herchel Smith Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and a Darwin Research Fellow at Darwin College. He obtained a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry from the Fritz Haber Center at HUJI working with Prof. Yehuda Zeiri and Prof. Ronnie Kosloff. In Cambridge, he collabroates closely with the group of Prof. David Wales on development and application of reactive energy landscape methods.
