MSI PI Laura Gagliardi, a professor in the Department of Chemistry, has been elected to be a Fellow of the American Physical Society. This award recognizes Professor Gagliardi's groundbreaking work in electronic-structure methods. An article about this award appears on the chemistry department's website.
Professor Gagliardi uses MSI resources for a number of projects that develop novel quantum chemical methods and applies them to study phenomena related to sustainable energies, with special focus on chemical systems relevant to catalysis, spectroscopy, photochemistry, and gas separation. A recent paper was featured in a Research Spotlight on the MSI website last earlier this month: A New Method for Creating a Catalyst on a Metal-Organic Framework.
