Beatriu de Pinós Researcher
Daniel Reta received his PhD in theoretical and computational chemistry at the University of Barcelona in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Illas and Dr. Moreira, investigating 3d-based molecular magnets and organic polyradicals. In 2016 he moved to Manchester to work with Prof. Kaltsoyannis on a project that identified appropriate computational approaches to describe the structural and spectroscopic properties of actinide-based molecules. In 2017 he joined Dr. Chilton's group where he studied the static and dynamical properties of highly axial lanthanide-based single molecule magnets, combining computational chemistry methods, SQUID magnetometry and EPR spectroscopy. Since 2021, he is part of the GMMF group as a Beatriu de Pinós Fellow, investigating molecular quantum gates.
