Patrick Lestrange passed his 2nd year exam

Congratulations to Patrick for passing his second year exam! Patrick poked fun at the trials and tribulations encountered during his research project with a talk titled “The first pancake theory: Adventures in electronic structure”. The closed-door portion of the exam involved a research proposal on modeling transient X-ray absorption spectroscopy.

Joseph May graduated!

Congratulations to the now Dr. Joseph May who defended his Ph.D. dissertation titled “Theoretical Insight into the Manipulation of the Optical and Magnetic Properties of TM2+-doped II-VI Semiconductor Quantum Dots” on Tuesday. Joseph will be moving to Las Vegas shortly to teach high school chemistry and will be sorely missed.
