Farewell to postdoc Alex Teplukhin, who is leaving us for a job at Intel. Good luck, Alex!
Yinan Shu Wins ACS COMP Wiley Award
Belated congratulations to former Levine group graduate student, Yinan Shu, for being awarded the Spring 2021 Wiley Computers in Chemistry Outstanding Postdoc Award by the ACS COMP Division. Congrats, Yinan!
Scott Fales wins ACS COMP Wiley Award
Congratulations to former Levine group graduate student, Scott Fales, for being awarded the Fall 2021 Wiley Computers in Chemistry Outstanding Postdoc Award by the ACS COMP division. Congrats, Scott!
Yinan Shu Receives Hochstrasser Award!
Congratulations to Levine group graduate, Yinan Shu, on receiving the 2020 Robin Hochstrasser Young Investigator Award from the journal Chemical Physics! Named for eminent spectroscopist and long-time Chemical Physics editor, Robin Hochstrasser, this award is given to one chemical physicist each year, who must be under 40 years of age and without a permanent academic appointment. Nice work, Yinan, keep racking up those awards!
Congratulations Almost-Dr. Esch!
Congratulations to Mike Esch, who successfully defended this Ph.D. dissertation this week! Mike has done excellent work on a number of topics, including lead halide perovskites, cyanine dyes, conical intersection “locality,” and nonadiabatic molecular dynamics methods for dense manifolds of electronic states. Lucky for us, Mike will be staying on as a postdoc in our group!
Congratulations to Levine group members Dylan and Katy for earning their masters degrees!
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!
Last week we bid farewell to Dmitry Fedorov, who is moving on to a postdoctoral position in the Alexeev group at Argonne National Lab and at General Atomics. While with us, Dmitry completed a number of very challenging projects in nonadiabatic molecular dynamics method development. We are sad to see him go, but we look forward to seeing the great things he will do in the future!
Today was summer REU student Andrew LaDuca’s last day. In a short 10 weeks, Andrew gained useful insights into the electrochemistry of an interesting class of organic molecules with hypothetical applications in water splitting and energy storage. Best wishes for your senior year at Grand Valley and future career!
