Artem Maksov

Data Scientist, GlaxoSmithKline


Supervising Faculty: Bobby Sumpter

Originally from Moscow, Russia, Artem got involved in research as an undergraduate with Dr. Michael D. Barnes’s group at University of Massachusetts Amherst, where his main goals were development and application of modern computational methods for problems in the areas of data analysis, signal processing and automation of scientific process. Artem is primarily interested in interdisciplinary research combining chemistry, physics and computer science, as applied to development and characterization of energy-related materials. This can be achieved with unique computational capabilities of ORNL, making demanding algorithms viable for addressing both classical and quantum mechanical problems at variable length and time scales. In order to achieve these goals, Artem is now working with Bobby Sumpter in Nanomaterials Theory Institute at the Center for Nanophase Material Sciences.
