Olexandr Isayev is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University. In 2008, Olexandr received his Ph.D. in computational chemistry. He was Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Case Western Reserve University and a scientist at the government research lab. During 2016-2019 he was a faculty at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Olexandr received the “Emerging Technology Award” from the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the GPU computing award from NVIDIA. The research in his lab focuses on connecting artificial intelligence (AI) with chemical sciences.
The Isayev lab works at the interface of theoretical chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences and computer science. In particular, we are using molecular simulations and artificial intelligence to solve hard problems in chemistry. We are working towards the acceleration of molecular discovery by the combination of AI, informatics and high-throughput quantum chemistry. They also focus on both generative and predictive ML models for chemical and biological data.
