Leroy (Lee) Cronin has been thinking about programming chemistry since he was 8 years old, when he got his first computer and chemistry set. He is now the Regius Professor of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow. He and his team are trying to make artificial life forms, find alien life, explore the digitization of chemistry, and construct chemical computers. S. Hessam M. Mehr is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow. He earned his PhD at the University of British Columbia (2017). His research focuses on probabilistic and information-theoretic methods in chemistry and the discovery of chemical novelty. Jarosław M. Granda is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Glasgow. He obtained his PhD at the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (2014). His research interests focus on the automation of organic synthesis and artificial-intelligence-driven systems for chemical discovery.
