Our group received funding from Stanadyne for a summer project dedicated to FEM-based modeling of fuel injector operation. This project will involve cooperation between our “senior” graduate students and some new SoE undergraduates who are just getting their feet wet with serious research.
|This paper was published in a new Nature-family partner journal “NPJ Computational Materials” that is dedicated to computational modeling of materials and materials-by-design stuff. So, no impact factor for this one yet, but of course we expect it to be quite high when it becomes available. Kudos to our graduate students John and Krishna who collaborated on this project!|
|Published in “Reports on Progress in Physics” together with colleagues from Argonne National Lab. This review had been a back burner activity for awhile until we finally managed to put all the pieces together in late Spring of 2016.|
|Our undergraduate student Rebecca Stern is graduating from UConn and will continue her studies in grad school at UC Berkeley. Furthermore, Rebecca’s Senior Design Project entitled “Quantum Mechanical pKa Predictions of Drug-Like Molecules” and conducted in collaboration with our colleagues from Pfizer Inc. won first prize for its final presentation. Photo below is taken during the poster presentation of this project at UConn SoE “Capstone Design” day and shows our Pfizer research team all together.

A few days ago we were notified that John will be receiving the highly prestigious U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award that will allow him to conduct his PhD research at one of the DoE national labs. John will be spending his summer at Argonne working with our collaborator Dr. Olle Heinonen. Congratulations to John!
A new article featuring Rebecca Stern, who is currently an MSE senior doing research with the group, was recently published on the MSE web site. Congratulations to Rebecca!
|The group welcomes new graduate student, Ayana Ghosh, who comes to us from University of Michigan-Flint and, lately, New Mexico State University. Ayana will be working on the “In Silico Solid Form Design” collaborative project that was recently seeded by Pfizer Inc. and UConn MSE.|
This project was mostly done by Siliang Chang, who is the student of Prof. Christos Takoudis at UIC. Seungbum Hong and
winning the best poster prize at the — prestigious and selective! — Paris International School on Advanced Computational Materials Science (PISACMS) for her work on epitaxial phases of Ruddlesden-Popper-type Ba2ZrO4. See proof below and read the new article about this and other Lydie’s accomplishments at UConn MSE department web page.
