Stephan Irle obtained his diploma in chemistry at the University of Siegen in Germany and a Ph.D. from the University of Vienna in Austria. Starting from 1997, he has worked with Prof. Keiji Morokuma and subscribers of the Emerson Center at Emory University on many problems in theoretical and computational chemistry, from small-molecule gas-phase reactions to large-scale quantum chemical molecular structure investigations. He has coordinated the Computational Nanomaterials Research efforts of the Morokuma group and increasingly used quantum chemical molecular dynamics simulations in the study of nanomaterial self-assembly processes far from thermodynamic equilibrium. After a recent brief stay at the Fukui Institute for Fundamental Chemistry at Kyoto University, he moved to the Institute for Advanced Research at Nagoya University where he continues theoretical studies in computational nanomaterials research and related areas.
Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) or via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun!
