Dr Amir Karton is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Australia (UWA). He leads the computational chemistry group at the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry. In 2010 Amir received his PhD degree in theoretical and computational chemistry from the Weizmann Institute of Science (under the supervision of Prof. Jan M. L. Martin). Amir joined UWA in late 2012 after postdoctoral training with Prof. Leo Radom at the University of Sydney. Amir is currently an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow. His research interests are focused on the development of quantum chemical theory and the application of these procedures to problems of chemical structure, mechanism and design.
