Teaching & PhD


Chemistry and Chemical Engineering


Advanced general chemistry I

This course comprises of two parts. The bases of the thermodynamics of equilibria and of the kinetics of reactions are introduced. The first notions of quantum chemistry on electrons and bonds, exemplified in organic chemistry, are presented in the second part.

Macromolecular structure and interactions

This course covers the basic biophysical principles governing the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of biomacromolecules involved in chemical processes of life. The course is held in English.

Dynamics of biomolecular processes

In this course we will discuss advanced biophysical topics, building on the framework established in the course "Macromolecular structure and interactions". The course is held in English.
