Congratulations to Feizhi Ding who passed his general exam. Feizhi presented on his work developing efficient methods for solving the real-time time-dependent Hartree-Fock and density functional theory equations. He also discussed his application of these methods to the study of organic photovoltaics in collaboration with Professor Alex Jen's and Professor David Ginger's labs at the University of Washington and on surface plasmon resonances in silver nanoparticle chains in collaboration with Assistant Professor Christine Aikens at Kansas State University. Feizhi has earned his Ph.D. candidacy and will be working to bring real-time time-dependence to mutlireference methods.
