Graduate Student Duyen Nguyen's FLOSIC Research was recognized at the 62nd Sanibel Symposium
One of FLOSIC's graduate students was recently recognized at the 62nd Sanibel Symposium sponsored by the University of Florida, February 12th through 17th, 2023. The student, Duyen Nguyen, is a Science of Advanced Materials Ph D candidate working under the supervision of Dr. Juan Peralta at Central Michigan University. Her work, titled, "Bond length alternation of 𝝅-conjugated polymers predicted by the FLOSIC method," focuses on finding the bond length alteration of five oligomers containing up to 16 repeating units using the FLOSIC method.
The Sanibel meetings began in 1961 to promote research on the quantum theory of atoms, molecules and materials. The IBM-Zerner Graduate Student Award is presented at the Sanibel Symposium to recognize the work of graduate students in the field and to encourage growth in the community of quantum scientists.
Based on the quality of research, up to six students awards are granted between four different categories: Undergraduate, Graduate, Postdoc, and Young Investigators. The award comes with a travel reimbursement of up to $500.
Duyen has been a valuable member of FLOSIC's team and we are happy to congratulate her on this award.
