Gabriel HannaGabriel Hanna
I received my BSc (Hon) in Chemistry from Laurentian University in 2001 and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Toronto in 2006, under the supervision of Prof. Raymond Kapral. My PhD research focused on the development and application of mixed quantum-classical techniques for simulating proton transfer reactions in condensed phase systems. From 2006 to 2009, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, working under the supervision of Prof. Eitan Geva. There, I worked on a mixed quantum-classical methodology for simulating multidimensional infrared spectra. In August 2009, I joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Alberta.

Graduate Students

Pablo Carpio Martinez Pablo Carpio Martinez
I am from Mexico. I completed my BSc in Chemistry at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEMex) and my MSc degree in Chemistry at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). In September 2016, I started my PhD studies at the University of Alberta as a member of Dr. Hanna's group. My research interests lie in understanding the dynamics and ultrafast spectroscopy of vibrational energy transport in extended chemical and biological systems, which can be studied using a combination of quantum chemistry techniques and mixed quantum-classical dynamics.

Craig Peeples Craig Peeples
I received my BSc and MSc in Chemistry at the University of Manitoba. For my undergraduate research, I studied actinide systems and my Master’s research involved the implementation of a solvation model into an electronic structure software. I started my PhD studies at the University of Alberta in Fall 2018, becoming a member of Dr. Hanna’s group. My current research focuses on the structure and dynamics of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and hydrogen-bonded organic frameworks (HOFs). In particular, I am interested in the dynamics of carbon dioxide sequestration, hydrogen bonding, as well as the semiconductive and magnetic properties of these solid-state systems.
