A team of experts in materials synthesis, processing, and computation at Harvard and Princeton Universities has been selected for research funding under the Department of Defense Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) program. The goals of this new MURI are to understand the nature and mechanisms of formation of electrets and to...
Professor Athanassios Panagiotopoulos has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, "for the invention of the Gibbs ensemble method of molecular simulation of phase equilibrium and the development of computational techniques for studying complex fluids."
Stanislav Y. Shvartsman, assistant professor of Chemical Engineering at Princeton, and associated faculty member with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, has been selected as an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow.
Professor of Chemical Engineering Yannis Kevrekidis has been named the recipient of the 2003 J.D. Crawford Prize, sponsored by the Activity Group on Dynamical Systems of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
M. Scott Shell, a fourth-year graduate student working with Professors Debenedetti and Panagiotopoulos, has obtained a significant theoretical result on the properties of saddles in multidimensional potential energy surfaces (energy landscapes). The research, published January 23 in Physical Review Letters, has important implications for the...
