"Ricardo Matute"

RICARDO A. MATUTE is Biochemist with PhD in Chemistry graduated from Universidad de Chile, with expertise in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. His doctoral thesis was developed under the supervision of Renato Contreras in Chile and Leticia González in Germany. He moved to Los Angeles in 2011 and carried out a first postdoctoral stage at UCLA in the group of Kendall Houk, followed by a second postdoctoral stage at USC in the group of Nobel Laureate Arieh Warshel and a research stay at Caltech in the group of Nobel Laureate Rudolph Marcus. After completing five years of postdoc in California, he moved back to Chile in 2016. Sponsored by Rudy Marcus, he is currently affiliated as Visitor in Chemistry in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Caltech.
