Welcome Prof. Suljo Linic from University Michigan who is Dr. Xin's PhD advisor visiting Virginia Tech for Doumas lecture
Congrats to Zheng, Siwen, and Wei Shan for the paper as back cover of J. Mater. Chem. A., emerging investigators 2017 issue. We outlined details of machine learning models for alloy electrocatalyst design.
Hongliang, Zheng, Jiamin, Siwen, and Noushin have attended and presented their work at AIChE, Minneapolis, MN.
Zheng, Jiamin, Siwen, Liang presented their work at SECS symposium. Noushin and Emily attended and hopefully enjoyed their first catalysis conference.
Dr. Xin is elected as the secretary of the Southeastern Catalysis Society at the 2017 Symposium held at Asheville, NC.
Congratulations to Noushin Omidvar for successfully passing the doctoral qualifying exam and ascending to PhD candidacy! She is working on modeling electrode-electrolyte interfaces in Li-ion batteries.
Congrats to Jiamin Wang who just received the poster award at the SUNCAT Summer Institute 2017 at Stanford University. She presented her work on developing large-scale nonadiabatic molecular dynamics enabled by machine learning.
Congrats to Siwen who received the travel award from the NSF to attend the World Congress of Chemical Engineering at Barcelona, 2017. The National Science Foundation, though their Program of Process Systems, Reaction Engineering and Molecular Thermodynamics of the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems, has provided a travel grant for young professors, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows affiliated with Chemical Engineering departments in the United States in order to attend the World Congress of Chemical Engineering (WCCE), October 1-5, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain.
