On the 11th of June Yingjie Gao presented her research to the committee and successfully passed her MS exam. Nice work, congratulations!
Our recent work on the self-assembly of nanoparticles on a glycol surface was accepted for publication in Langmuir. Exciting in situ X-ray scattering experiments done with the amazing Detlef Smilgies at CHESS. It is also Tyler’s first paper, congrats!
First year graduate student Mohshin Suri (ChemE, UT Austin ’19) joins our group to work on photobiocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide. Welcome on board!
Kaylee Dunnigan from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering joins us for this summer as a CCMR REU student. Welcome in the group!

Tobias has been promoted to Full professor. The decision is based on reviews of students, colleagues and international peers, and highlights his commitment to teaching, mentoring, motivating students and redesigning educational approaches. We, the lab members couldn’t agree more. Congratulations!
Ben’s work on the mechanistic details of growing nanowires on heated copper surfaces is published in Chemistry of Materials. The work discusses the thermodynamics of the seed formation, and shows a beautiful, simple method to study the process in situ. Read the paper HERE.
