Taufique will spend the summer as an intern at the Pacific Northwest National Lab. He will perform molecular modeling of water, alcohol and ions in graphene oxide membranes.
CNL’s ongoing research on sodium batteries has been reported in The Daily Evergreen! Here is a link to the article.
Congratulations to Taufique for being selected a nominee for the best poster award at the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting!
The poster describes CNL’s ongoing edfforts in modeling organic-inorganic lead halide based perovskites for solar cell applications.
Recent WSU News post on “Safe, low-cost sodium battery nets $500k research grant” features CNL’s engagement in modeling all solid state sodium batteries. See details by visiting the link: https://news.wsu.edu/2017/04/11/safe-low-cost-sodium-battery-grant/
Taufique and Aniruddha, graduate students at CNL, will present their work on perovskite solar cells and Na-ion batteries respectively in the MRS Spring Meeting to be held in Phoenix this April.
Both Taufique and Aniruddha were awarded the Alaska Airlines travel grant to attend the conference.
Aniruddha Dive, a PhD candidate at PNNL, has been awarded the highly competitive Alaska Airlines travel grant to present his research on batteries at the MRS Spring meeting in Phoenix in 2017.
Recent work on calculation of electrochemical stability of electrolytes has been featured as Research Highlight at Department of Energy’s Joint Center of Energy Storage Research (JCESR). Additional details can be found at the link below:
Dr. Soumik Banerjee will give a talk on modeling electrolytes and electrode-electrolyte interfaces of lithium batteries at the Theory and Applications of Computational Chemistry (TACC) conference. The conference will be held in Seattle from August 28th through September 2nd.
Dr. Soumik Banerjee has been invited to present his work on modeling electrolytes and electrode-electrolyte interfaces of lithium batteries at the NSF-IUSSTF Indo-US Workshop on Analysis of Multiphysics Phenomena in Li-ion Cells. The workshop will be held at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai between June 17th through June 19th.
Mortuza successfully defended his PhD dissertation titled “Modeling Agglomeration and Deposition of Organic Nanoparticles during Solution Processing of Thin Films” on April 12th 2016. Mortuza will be moving to Ann Arbor this June to start with a postdoctoral position at the Yang lab in the University of Michigan. CNL wishes him all the very best in his future endeavors and thanks him for his contributions!
