Simon P. Webb, Ph.D.

Chief Scientific Officer

Dr. Webb has more than 20 years experience in computational chemistry method development and application to chemical and biological systems. He has made significant contributions to the quantum chemistry package GAMESS, and has also implemented mixed quantum classical methods for simulation of proton transfer reactions in enzymes. Recently he has guided the design and implementation of a new parallel processor version of VeraChem’s VM2 software for calculation of protein-ligand binding free energies. Currently he is leading a project to interface quantum mechanics energy potentials with VM2. He received his undergraduate degree in Applied Chemistry from Nottingham Trent University and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Iowa State University.
