Group Alumni

Lukas

Lukas Ludescher

PhD Student (Visiting, Fall 2017)

Lukas is a second year Ph.D. student in Physics from the Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria. His research focuses on the experimental evaluation of sorption induced deformation in biological and synthesised materials and on the modeling of scattering and deformation of porous materials using computational methods.

Armani

Armani-Christian Roxas

Undergraduate Researcher (Fall 2016 - Summer 2017)

Armani is a senior in CBPE department. His research consists of molecular dynamics simulations using the GROMACS software package for aromatic hydrocarbon-carbon systems in order to calculate surface stresses. With these simulations, some light can be shed on condensation-induced soot restructuring.

Marcelo

Marcelo Munoz

High School Student (Summer 2017)

Union City High School

Marecelo is a high school student working within the ACS SEED program. Marcelo works with Christopher Dobrzanski, whose research is focused on molecular modeling of adsorption of simple fluids in nanoporous materials. Marcelo uses python for analysis of atomistic structures generated in Monte Carlo simulations. The overall goal of his research project is to relate the structure of the adsorbed argon to its elastic properties.

Emma

Emma King

BS Student (visiting, Summer 2018)

Emma is a rising senior at Wellesley College in Massachusetts. She is working with Max Maximov on adapting the group models for predictions of vapor-liquid equilibrium in organic compounds relevant to atmospheric chemistry

Zach

Zachary Lyandres

High School Student (Summer 2017 and 2018)

Tenafly High School

Zach is a high school student working within the Provost Summer Research Internship. Zach worked with Armani-Christian Roxas, Nick Corrente and Christopher Dobrzanski, writing Python scripts for analysis of atomistic structures generated in molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. During the Summer 2017 Zach's research project was to relate the structure of the adsorbed benzene to mechanical stresses it induces on the surface. During the Summer 2018, Zach developed a Python script for analyzing the correlation between the ordering in confined fluid and its elastic properties.

Juan

Juan Valencia

High School Student (Summer 2018)

Union City High School

Juan is a high school student working within the ACS SEED program. Juan works with Emma King and Max Maximov, exploring the predictive models to calculate saturated vapor pressure for chemicals relevant to atmospheric chemistry.
