Ana Delia Parejo Vidal

I would define myself as a nature-lover, outdoorsy, and outgoing person. Resident in Santa Barbara (CA, USA) and born in Granada (Spain), I love traveling and socializing with new people and cultures, which has allowed me to live happily on two different continents.

My work ethic is a combination of determination, engaging with others, and following my morals. I would like to to create an eco-friendly path in my career that aligns with my personality and beliefs.


Physical Chemistry


During my PhD, my principal investigator is Professor Mattanjah de Vries (UCSB). In his group, I am working in two different projects:


1) Co-adviced by Professor Mike Gordon: Development of TELD, a technique that uses atomic force microscopy (AFM) to sample material at submicron resolution for off-line analysis by REMPI or other techniques.


2) Co-adviced by Professor Vojtěch Vlček: Using stochastic TD-DFT with range-separated hybrid functionals to obtain quantitative theoretical predictions of electronic excitations for optoelectronic devices.
