Katarzyna M. Krupka
Katarzyna M. Krupka is a predoctoral researcher with a focus on computational chemistry, molecular physics, and subnanometric science. She graduated from the University of Wrocław in Poland, where she earned her Master degree in organic chemistry. Currently, she is a Doctoral Candidate in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA DN) PHYMOL: Physics, Accuracy and Machine Learning: Towards the next generation of Molecular Potentials, specifically in the DC8 project led by Professor María Pilar de Lara-Castells in the AbinitSim Unit at IFF-CSIC in Madrid. Her main scientific interest concerns the state-of-the-art modeling of quantum materials, particularly metal atomic quantum clusters, with high-level ab initio methods.
Under the mentorship and supervision of Professor María Pilar de Lara-Castells, she is actively exploring unsupported and surface-supported subnanometric metal clusters and intermolecular interactions. Committed to making a positive impact through research, she also bridges the gap between science and art through graphic design.
Within the COST Action CA21101 “Confined Molecular Systems: from the new generation of materials to the stars” (COSY) she is an active member of Working Groups 1, 2, 3, 4 and holds a Social Media Manager position.
