I am an assistant professor in the Management of Complex Systems Department and the Ernest and Julio Gallo Management Program at the University of California Merced. Before joining UC Merced, I was at the IMT Institute for Advance Studies Lucca (Italy), and prior to that, I spent my doctoral years at Boston University where I received a PhD in Physics (2011), advised by H. E. Stanley.
Jessica Maat (REU student with us during summer 2016 through the AIMM program) has been accepted to the ACS undergraduate computational workshop to be held at the April ACS meeting in San Francisco. Yay Jessica! Jessica will be presenting her work modeling the hyperpolarizabilities of chromophore dimers at the ACS COMP poster session.
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!
Tim brings a lot of expertise in TDDFT and modeling solvation from his Ph.D. experience with Peter Haynes at Imperial College and a post-doc with Mike Payne at the University of Cambridge. Welcome Tim!
