Christine receives the ACS Open Eye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in Computational Chemistry

March 12, 2016

At the ACS meeting in San Diego, Christine was presented with the ACS Open Eye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in Computational Chemistry. Woo!  This included a fabulous sushi dinner at Nobu and an honorarium.

A van load of 7 students from the Hratchian and Isborn groups headed to ACS to present at the poster session.  Lee Thompson, Hrant, and Christine gave talks.

Our real-time TDDFT tutorial review article is now online

Dr. Aleksey Kocherzhenko joins the group

December 15, 2015

Aleksey brings a lot of knowledge in charge transfer and transport dynamics and model Hamiltonian methods from a post-doc in Birgitta Whaley's group at UC Berkeley and Ph.D. training with Ferdinand Grozema and Laurens Siebbeles at Delft University. Welcome Aleksey!

Our DOE proposal is funded! We'll be developing methods for modeling excited states in solution.

September 15, 2015

Christine is PI on a DOE proposal to collaborate with Tom Markland at Stanford and Aurora Clark at Washington State University on the "Development of Approaches to Model Excited State Charge and Energy Transfer in Solution." Our proposed will bring together excited state electronic structure methodology in both the linear response and time domains, quantum dynamics on both ground and excited states, and solvation
