Glenn J. Martyna
Physical Sciences Division
IBM TJ Watson Laboratory
Dr. Martyna received his Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from the Columbia University and subsequently became a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He was a tenured faculty member at Indiana University, Bloomington before joining IBM. In 2008, he was appointed Honorary Professor of Physics at The University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Dr. Martyna's research has focused on atomistic modeling of chemical, biological and materials processes, in particular, developing novel techniques that markedly increase the speed and efficiency of computer simulations and applying the methods to investigate important physical phenomena.
