Mátyás Pápai is a chemist, he graduated from Eötvös Loránd University in 2008, where his scientific interest was the synthesis of ferrocene derivatives and applied quantum chemistry. After the graduation, he spent one year at Semmelweis University. He received a position at KFKI Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics (predecessor of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics WRCP), where he started his PhD in Theoretical Chemistry in 2010 under the supervision of György Vankó. He defended his PhD in 2015. Afterwards he spent 5 postdoctoral years at the Technical University of Denmark, initiated by his H.C Ørsted Fellowship (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND), in the group of Klaus B. Møller. He returned to WRCP in 2020 with a postdoctoral excellence fellowship, funded by the Hungarian National Research, Development and Innovation Office. His research focuses on excited-state dynamics simulations (quantum and semiclassical dynamics) and computational spectroscopy.
