Nicole received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz. There she worked with Professor Yat Li, studying enhancements to hematite nanowire arrays for use as photoanodes for water splitting. She joined the Subotnik group in 2014. Her research interests include methods for modeling nonadiabatic dynamics and their applications.
Wenjie was a graduate student in Subotnik group, working on developing and/or implementing surface hopping and electronic friction to deal with nonadiabatic dynamics near metal surfaces. Now he is a postdoc with Prof. Rabani at Berkeley.
I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Subotnik group, broadly working on development of the surface hopping methodology and its extension to various venues. Particularly, I worked on including non-adiabatic effects in rate computation, benchmarking non-adiabatic methods for computing vibrational energy relaxation rates, and developing a modified highly efficient surface hopping algorithm. Currently, I am working as an assistant professor at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
Greg was a graduate student at the University of California, San Diego where he worked with Francesco Paesani on the development of “first principles” methods for modeling vibrational spectra in condensed phases. As a postdoc in the Subotnik group, he studied the nonadiabatic dynamics of dual fluorescent molecules and implemented improved surface hopping algorithms in Q-Chem. He is currently a software engineer at Comcast.
As a graduate student in Prof. Joseph Subotnik’s research group (2011-2017), my research focuses on electronic structure theory for nonadiabatic dynamics. Currently I am a postdoc in Prof. Emily Carter's research group at Princeton University. My research here focuses on the development and improvement of embedding theory.
My Ph.D. research in the Subotnik's group (2012-2017) involved the understanding of surface hopping algorithms and their applications in condensed phase systems. I studied the entropic implication of traditional Tully-style surface hopping approaches. I also helped study the new flavors of surface hopping approach that treated a manifold of electronic states and applied the new approach to the study of electrochemistry. I have joined Susquehanna International Group, LLP as a quantitative developer.
Xinle was in Prof. Joseph Subotnik's group as a Ph.D. student working on excited state electronic structure during 2010-2015, she is now a C++ developer at J.P. Morgan.
For my PhD research in the Subotnik group, I helped to develop new theoretical techniques for describing systems in which the nuclear dynamics and electronic structure are strongly coupled. This work included developing a new representation of diabatic electronic states, analytic forms for the coupling term between nuclear momentum and electronic state, and modelling charge separation in dye-sensitized solar cells. Currently I work as a developer at Schrodinger, Inc.
In Joe's group at UPenn (2012-2014), I was involved in a project to elucidate the photoinitiated dynamics in molecular system where multi-reference character is pronounced. At present, I'm working as an assistant professor at Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar, India. My current research interests include development and application of theoretical and computational methods to study electron-atom/molecule scattering resonances, electronic structure, non-adiabatic effects and dynamics.
