Congrats to Siwen, Noushin, and Emily for the paper in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., Communications. We applied the orbitalwise coordination number concept for understanding size effects in Au-catalyzed CO oxidation.
Welcome Prof. Suljo Linic from University Michigan visiting Virginia Tech for Bill and Ann Doumas distinguished 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.
Dr. Xin is elected as the secretary of the Southeastern Catalysis Society at the 2017 Symposium held at Asheville, NC.
Zheng, Jiamin, Siwen, Liang presented their work at SECS symposium. Noushin and Emily attended and hopefully enjoyed their first catalysis conference.
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.
