PySpawn

Check out our most recent paper in JCTC, describing out new implementation of multiple spawning dynamics: PySpawn. PySpawn is an implementation of ab initio multiple spawning (AIMS) in Python 2.7. It is designed to take advantage of modern computational resources and to be easily linked to electronic structure packages carry out ab initio multiple spawning (AIMS) calculations. It is free and open source, and can be downloaded here.

Congratulations, Derek Metcalf!

Congratulations to Derek Metcalf, former undergraduate researcher in our group, for earning a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship!  After graduating MSU in 2018, Derek joined the Ph.D. program at Georgia Tech, where he now working in the group of David Sherrill.  Keep up the good work, Derek!

Congratulations, Yinan Shu!

It’s nice to be able to share some good news.

Yinan Shu was named a 2020 PHYS Division Young Investigators by the ACS PHYS division:

Yinan was one of the first Levine group members, joining in 2011 and earning his PhD in 2016.  During his time here he lead a number of projects, ranging from semiconductor photophysics to electronic structure method development to the automated design of light emitting molecules.  He is currently a postdoc in the group of Don Truhlar at University of Minnesota.

Nice work, Yinan, and very well deserved!

Congratulations, almost-Dr. Peng!

Congratulations to Wei-Tao for successfully defending his dissertation today!  Wei-Tao has done excellent work on several projects (silicon defect photophysics, cyanine photochemistry, and time-dependent electronic structure method development).  In a couple of months Wei-Tao will join the group of Jochen Blumberger at University College London as a postdoc.  We can’t wait to see the great things he will do there and beyond!
