Final Examination – Dissertation Defense

linkedinphoto_kerry Congratulations to Kerry Garrett, who defended her thesis work, Computational Study of Linear and Nonlinear Optical Properties of Single Molecules and Clusters of Organic Electro-Optic Chromophores, on December 15, 2015. Her work in the Dalton group focused on investigating the accuracy of various density functional theory methods for predicting electronic transitions and nonlinear optical properties of specific organic electro-optic molecules of interest. She is now studying molecular dynamics simulations and electronic structure properties of actinide materials as a post-doctoral research associate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
