When it’s 68 °F in February in Ithaca, NY, it’s time for a group outing to the Dairy Bar!
The group’s recent work on polyolefin compatibilizers was featured in the Cornell Chronicle!
Congrats to James and co-authors for their work on PE-b–iPP polymers as compatibilizers for PE and iPP being published in Science!!
We are excited to have two new postdocs! Dr. Kristine Klimovica comes to us from the University of Houston and Dr. Brooks Abel from the University of Southern Mississippi. Welcome to the group!!!!!
Welcome to our new first year grad students – Hillis Johnson, Bryce Lipinski, and Leah Jaynes! Hillis will be working on polyolefins, Bryce on polymer electrolytes, and Leah on polyesters.
Welcome to the group!
Congratulations to our fantastic undergrad Ahmed M. Ahmed! He was one of only 32 recipients in the entire country of the Rhodes Scholarship. He plans to use it to pursue as master’s degree in medicinal organic chemistry at the University of Oxford in England.
Congrats Ahmed! We are all so proud of you and know you will do wonderfully at Oxford!
Our group’s previous work on poly(limonene carbonate) was featured in the NSF’s celebration of National Chemistry Week this year! Thanks to the NSF for funding us and for highlighting this project! It was also featured in a brief article in Discover Magazine (click to image 9 of 12).
Megan Fieser from the Tolman group at UMN came and visited for the week to do high-throughput experiments through the CSP. We’ve really enjoyed having her this week! Come back for another round of experiments any time, Megan!
