Group member Ronal A. De La Cruz (Ph.D. student in ChEng) was accepted to a summer program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). This Center is located in the beautiful town of Livermore, California and is planning to hold its Computational Chemistry & Materials Science (CCMS) Summer Institute from June 6 – August 12, 2016. This program offers graduate students the opportunity to work directly with leading LLNL researchers on the development and application of cutting edge methods in computational materials science and chemistry and other related areas of computational science. The 2016 CCMS Summer Institute will have a special focus on “Mesoscale Materials and Chemistry” to reflect the ever increasing interest and enormous research opportunities in mesoscale phenomena, where classical, nanoscale and quantum science meet.
Each student will spend ten weeks at LLNL as a guest of an LLNL host scientist working on a computational project in the host’s area of expertise. Also this program accepted a wide variety of students from prestigious universities and in different parts of the world. In addition, leading researchers from universities and national labs will give a series of mini-courses for the students. These courses will cover state-of-the-art and emerging computational methods in materials science and chemistry.
Congratulations Ronal for a well deserved opportunity!
