Alex and Byron attended the Gordon Research Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI. Heard about lots of great science and met lots of new friends.
Alex was also elected to co-chair the next Gordon Research Seminar associated with the conference in 2020. This mini-conference is dedicated to grad students and postdocs interested in electron transfer reactions. Congrats Alex!
Our recent NSF grant with Ryan Comes was highlighted in the COSAM Today newsletter. Check it out in the link here.
The group gathered at the Farnum house to celebrate our new grant from NSF and the arrival of our first postdoc – Dr. Soumen Saha.
Dr. Soumen Saha joins the group as a postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Saha received his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology – Guwahati.
We are proud to announce the funding of our first NSF grant!! In collaboration with Ryan Comes (Assistant Prof. – Physics), we are now funded to study the electronic behavior of perovskite-spinel epitaxial films and their catalytic properties toward water oxidation and oxygen reduction reactions relevant to fuel cells. Thank you DMR-SSMC and EPSCoR!
The group celebrated the end of the Spring semester and the beginning of Summer with lunch at Little Italy Pizzeria. Here’s to a productive Summer of research!
Ramesh Kumar Kokal has joined the group on a Bhaskara Advanced Solar Energy (BASE) Internship supported by the Government of India and Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum. Ramesh is currently a 4th year graduate student at the Indian Institute of Technology in Hyderabad, India in the group of Prof. M. Deepa. He will join our group from April – September 2018 and work on photoelectrochemistry of quantum dot solar cells. Welcome Ramesh!
