The Hutchison research group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh develops new materials, as well as functional microscale and nanoscale devices. We focus on building electronic materials from molecular subunits, both organic and inorganic, using a variety of techniques to rationally design the desired properties. This encompasses chemical synthesis, characterization (both physical and chemical), combined with theoretical modeling and simulation.
Welcome to Caroline Chun, a first year grad student joining the group. She’ll start with experiments, but hopes to combine both in her projects.
Congratulations to Dakota for winning a 2017 Stafford Award for excellence in grad student teaching!
Congrats to Chris Petroff for a fast time at the NYC Marathon, finishing in 2:36:57, a new group record. Now on to your comp exam!
Chris awarded the Braskem America Predoctoral Fellowship for exemplary work in field of chemistry! Congrats!
