David Furman, PhD MRSC is a Herchel Smith Research Fellow at the Theory RIG
of the Department of Chemistry. ​He holds 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 FRS on
development of novel methods to explore reactive energy landscapes.
