Kristin Persson is director of Berkeley Lab's Molecular Foundry. The Molecular Foundry, a Nanoscale Science Research Center national user facility, serves over 1,000 academic, industrial, and government scientists annually from all over the world through its user program. The user program grants researchers access to unique, state-of-the-art instrumentation, and affords the opportunity to collaborate with Molecular Foundry scientists with expertise across a broad range of disciplines.
In addition, Persson is a senior faculty scientist in the Energy Storage & Distributed Resources Division within the Energy Technologies Area. The Persson Group studies the physics and chemistry of materials using atomistic computational methods and high-performance computing technology, particularly for clean energy production and storage applications.
Professor Persson directs the Materials Project which is a multi-institution, multi-national effort to compute the properties of all inorganic materials and provide the data and associated analysis algorithms to researchers free of charge. The ultimate goal of the initiative is to drastically reduce the time needed to invent new materials by focusing costly and time-consuming experiments on compounds that show the most promise computationally.
