Large European Grant awarded to Basile Curchod

Congratulations to Dr Basile Curchod on the award of a large grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The project SINDAM (Sunlight-Induced Nonadiabatic Dynamics of Atmospheric Molecules) will focus on the role played by sunlight on the chemical composition of our atmosphere. Using theoretical chemistry, the SINDAM team will investigate how the chemistry of volatile organic compounds (molecules contributing substantially to both global warming and air pollution) is altered when they absorb light from the sun. This ERC project will start in January 2019 and allow for the recruitment of two postgraduate students as well as two postdoctoral research associates.
