On my way back from Copenhagen last Thursday I stopped in Kiel to visit Henrik Larsson and some other people from last year's Deutsche Schülerakademie in Grovesmühle.
Henrik is doing his PhD at the group of Prof. Bernd Hartke and so I took the opportunity and gave a short talk at their group seminar on my progress in Copenhagen (slides are attached below).
Most people in the Hartke group work on global optimisation of structures or reaction pathways or on fitting reactive force fields. Hence my talk turned out to be a little off-topic. On the other hand I had an afternoon of enjoyful and rather unusual discussions, where I learned quite a lot about their work.
