Kateryna Lemishko

JUNIOR SCIENTIST

Kateryna Lemishko joined Quantemol as a Junior Scientist in November 2022. She obtained her undergraduate and master’s degrees in Chemistry at V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Ukraine) in 2011 and 2012 respectively. In 2014, she obtained a joint European master’s degree in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) and the University of Perugia (Italy) under the Erasmus Mundus program. In 2020, Kateryna Lemishko completed her PhD in Biophysics at the Autonomous University of Madrid. Throughout her PhD research project carried out at the IMDEA Nanoscience Institute (Spain), she used Optical Tweezers to study at the single-molecule level the activity of the proteins involved in human mitochondrial DNA replication, as well as to study the dynamics of individual synthetic molecular shuttles under force.

Dr Greg Armstrong

RESEARCH SCIENTIST

Greg Armstrong is a theoretical atomic and molecular physicist who joined Quantemol as a Scientific Consultant in March 2023. He obtained his PhD at Queen’s University Belfast in 2011, working on laser-driven double ionization dynamics. He subsequently held postdoctoral positions at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Kansas State University before returning to Queen’s University in 2017. His main areas of expertise are attosecond photoionization and photodissociation, atomic structure, and electron collision processes. His recent research has focused on enabling time-dependent R-matrix codes to describe double photoionization, as well as ionization driven by arbitrarily-polarized laser fields. He now works on the development and application of the Quantemol Electron Collisions software.

Sam Giltrap

R&D PROJECT MANAGER

Sam Giltrap joined Quantemol as R&D Project Manager in March 2024. He obtained his PhD in Plasma Physics at Imperial College London in 2017, working with optically levitated targets for high-intensity laser-matter interactions. He has subsequently worked across industries most recently leading a high-tech optical R&D lab for a small startup spun out from the University of Cambridge. His expertise are in managing complex parallel projects, keeping the vision clear and the work on track. At Quantemol Sam is responsible for the planning and execution of project management services for physics-based software development projects, ensuring project goals are delivered on time and on budget.

Arsad Quraishi

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMER

Arsad Quraishi received MS (by Research) from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in 2017 and Ph.D. from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in 2021, both in aerospace engineering. Further, he worked as a research fellow in astronautics group, University of Southampton, UK. His research activities are focused on numerical and experimental investigations of plasma devices and development of miniaturized space propulsion thrusters. He has extensive expertise in investigating the physics of RF plasma discharge and propulsion systems as well as in numerical modelling. He is working as a scientific programmer and developing plasma modelling software.

Tagra Samir

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMER
