Ken Houk (Winstein Chair in Organic Chemistry, UCLA) is one of the most prominent and productive scientists all around the world. His group has decisively contributed to the birth and spreading of a new scientific field, Computational Chemistry. Ranging from Physical Organic Chemistry to Enzyme Catalysis and Photovoltaic Materials, the Houk lab uses cutting-edge programs and supercomputers to solve fundamental questions about chemical structure and reactivity in close collaboration to experimentalists. He has published more than 1,000 papers and has received countless awards and honors (a more detailed biography is available here).
