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!
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!
October 2022: We are very happy to welcome Dr. Jussi Isokuortti who will be joining us as a postdoctoral researcher! Jussi completed his PhD at Tampere University in Hyvinkää, Finland under the guidance of Dr. Timo Laaksonen where he studied photon upconversion and photoswitching. Jussi will be working on a collaborative project between our group and that of Zak Page focused on 3D printing. Welcome Jussi!
September 2022: Our group is very glad to welcome Dr. Dabin Kim, who will be joining us as a postdoctoral researcher. Dabin completed her PhD work at the University of Pennsylvania under Dr. Jessica Anna and will be working to expand our capabilities in electronic sum frequency generation. Welcome Dabin!
June 2022: Together with Carlos Baiz's lab, this month our group organized Coherent Multidimensional Spectroscopy 2022, which brought over 150 attendees to Austin from across the US, Europe, and Asia. It was truly an honor to host this meeting and to be able to highlight some of the work that we've been doing here in ATX!
June 2022: Our group's collaborative paper with Jean-Hubert Olivier's group at the University of Miami investigating stapled superstructures of dye aggregates has been accepted by Chemistry of Materials! Congrats are in order for Danielle for her work on this report!
April 2022: Congratulations are in order for Danny who successfully defended his thesis! Danny will be heading out in May to start as a postdoctoral research in Jahan Dawlaty's Group at USC. Congrats Dr. Cotton!
