Rafael Gomez-Bombarelli, Ph.D.

Chief Learning Officer

In addition to his role with ZebiAI, Dr. Gomez-Bombarelli is Assistant Professor in Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). While at MIT and previously, his research trajectory has ranged from experimental physical organic chemistry and genotoxicity to computer-driven design of molecular materials. By combining first-principles simulation with machine learning, his group works in accelerating the discovery cycle of novel practical materials.

Dr. Gomez-Bombarelli received a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Chemistry from Universidad de Salamanca in Spain, followed by postdoctoral work at Heriot-Watt University and Harvard University. After this, he was a senior scientist at Kyulux NA applying Harvard-licensed technology to create real-life commercial organic light-emitting diode (OLED) products. He joined the MIT faculty in January 2018 and received the Google Faculty Award in 2019.
