Congratulations to one of our newest undergraduate researchers, Rui Qi (Richie) Chen, for winnig both a ChESS fellowship and a SURF fellowship! He will be working on Chenru Duan’s and Heather Kulik’s machine learning method for predicting whether or not our DFT calculations will converge prior to even running them. His work will speed up our GASpy framework by allowing us to skip DFT calculations that are more likely to fail.
