Lestrange is a Ph.D. Candidate

Shocking no one but himself, Patrick Lestrange has passed his General Exam. Patrick spoke last week about his recent work on modeling high energy and multidimensional spectroscopy with TDDFT. He also teased some preliminary work on how transition properties change when the dipole approximation breaks down (more to come on that later). Congratulations!
