Ramesh’s Last Day

Ramesh - Farewell Lunch 2018Ramesh - Last Day 2018

We bid farewell to Ramesh on his last day in the lab under his BASE Internship. He returns to India to finish his dissertation at IIT-Hyderabad. It was great having Ramesh in the lab over the past 6 months. We will miss him and are anxiously awaiting his biography “Ramerica: Adventures in the US.”

Gordon Conference

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!


NSF Funding!


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!
