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!
