Chris awarded the Braskem America Predoctoral Fellowship for exemplary work in field of chemistry! Congrats!
Congratulations to Chris for winning a Safford Award for excellence in teaching. He has demonstrated outstanding teaching capability and a willingness to go above and beyond the dimensions of her teaching assignment both while teaching General Chemistry and Physical Chemistry.
Well done, Chris!
Congratulations to Paula for winning a Safford Award for excellence in teaching. She has demonstrated outstanding teaching capability and a willingness to go above and beyond the dimensions of her teaching assignment, specifically in the Physical Chemistry lab courses.
Well done, Paula!

Congratulations to graduate student, Xinfeng Quan, who ran the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 12, 2013. He completed the race in 3 hours and 34 minutes, for an average of 8:11 minutes/mile.
Well done, Xinfeng!
Many congratulations to Dr. Andrey Sharapov! Andrey defended his dissertation “Fast Treatment Of Pi-Stacking Using Density Functional Theory” in physics on April 8th. His dissertation involved the use of the Harris approximation in DFT for predicting pi stacking geometries in conjugated molecules, with a speed up of 10-20x over conventional methods. Congrats Andrey!
