Adam Mater completed his undergraduate in Bachelor of Philosophy (Science), first class honours, with a focus on computational chemistry at ANU in 2017. His undergraduate research focused on computational modelling of radical photoinitiators for polymerisation, while his Honours project focused on applying machine learning to small molecule ab initio chemistry.
He was fortunate to receive Deakin and Westpac Future Leaders scholarships and commenced his PhD in chemical artificial intelligence at ANU at the start of 2018. Adam is passionate about teaching and undertook a teaching fellowship at the research school of chemistry at ANU in July of 2018.
Adam has joined the Green group for six months at the start of 2019 as a visiting scholar working on developing the predictive machine learning modules of the reaction mechanism generator software package. He is a black belt in Karate, enjoys powerlifting, played the trumpet for eight years, and spends his free time working on coding projects.
