Edward Pyzer-Knapp

Edward Pyzer-Knapp obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge using simulation-based techniques to help guide experimental materials design. He then moved to Harvard where he was in charge of the day-to-day running of the Harvard Clean Energy project, which was a collaboration with IBM which combined massive distributed computing, quantum-mechanical simulations, and machine-learning to accelerate discovery of the next generation of organic photovoltaic materials. Now, Edward works for IBM Research UK, leading the large-scale machine learning research effort with a specific interest in bringing cutting edge techniques from machine learning and data science to the physical and life sciences.
