Albert is a research scientist in the Theory and Computation Physics group, working on modelling the atomistic and electronic structure of matter. His research interests include first principles electronic structure calculations, spectroscopy, molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning. Albert has spent a considerable amount of time on developing machine learning applications in atomistic simulations, with the aim of achieving quantum mechanical accuracy at a fraction of its usual computational costs.
In his current role, he supports the Collaborative Computational Project for NMR Crystallography by developing and implementing new computational approaches to benefit the experimental solid-state NMR community.
Albert has an MSc in Chemistry (Budapest, 2006) and a PhD in Physics (Cambridge, 2010) and held a Junior Research Fellowship in Magdalene College (2010-2013) and a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (2013-2016) in Cambridge before taking up his current position in the group in 2016.
