January 2023: Congrats to Cam! Her collaborative paper with the Link, Landes, Rossky, and Dionne groups describing the use of plasmons to generate solvated electrons was just published by PNAS! This manuscript showcases some of the beautiful work that our group has been doing as a member of the Center for Adapting Flaws into Features, a NSF CCI! You can check out a press release for the paper here!
December 2022: Congrats are in order for Jess! Her paper describing a new research-focused organic chemistry course that she helped to develop in collaboration with faculty at Austin Community College was just accepted by the Journal of Chemical Education!
November 2022: Congrats to Danielle, Danny, Jess, & Emily! Their paper examining the impact of molecular aggregation on electron transfer between quantum dots and molecules has been accepted by JACS! This paper is a collaboration between our group and the Rossky group at Rice via the Center for Adapting Flaws into Features, a NSF CCI! You can check out a press release describing the paper here.
November 2022: Welcomes are in order for new graduate student Mark Jones who will be joining our group this fall! Mark will be a joint student with the Baiz lab and will be working to develop a new time-resolved microscope for following vibrational dynamics with high spatial resolution!
October 2022: We are very happy to welcome new graduate students Margaret Hebert and Xinyi Wu to the group! Margaret plans on using 2DES to study the structure of supramolecular aggregates while Xinyi will examine nanocrystal systems designed for photon upconversion. Welcome to the group!
