Yukio Kawashima

Quantum Chemist

Yukio received his PhD in theoretical chemistry and a BA in applied chemistry from the University of Tokyo, Japan. Before joining 1QBit, he enjoyed research in the field of theoretical chemistry at the Institute for Molecular Science, Nagoya University, Kyushu University, Yokohama City University, and RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science. He was working on developing electronic structure calculation methods for molecules in condensed phase. He also has experience in path integral molecular dynamics simulation, employing electronic structure calculations to describe the nuclear quantum fluctuation. On weekends, he loves to play and watch sports with his family.
