1st year grad students Karnamohit Ranka and Paniz Rahmani join the group. Welcome! Karnamohit brings expertise in electronic structure methods from his time in Rod Bartlett's group at QTP. Paniz is rotating through the group while she decides if she wants to jump away from her previous experience studying hydrogen tunneling in enzymes into the world of simulations and computational chemistry.
Christine heads to the ACS Meeting in Washington DC for the session on "Electronic Structure Methods in Complex Systems", organized by Sahar Sharifzadeh, James Shephard, and Filipp Furche. Her parents and 4 month old Baby Joe are coming along, too! It will be exciting to experience the big solar eclipse surrounded by a bunch of scientists.
