Steve-Dave Wansi Wendji, a graduate PhD student at IPCMS under the supervision of Carlo Massobrio and Guido Ori, was recently awarded the competitive Graduate Student Award (GSA) in recognition of his outstanding work entitled “First-principles and machine-learned potential molecular dynamics of GeSe2 liquid and glass” as a contribution talk to the E-MRS 2022 Fall Meeting (Symposium C: “From predictive modelling to machine learning as versatile tools for materials design”, www.european-mrs.com/meetings/2022-fall-meeting).
Kana Ishisone, a 2nd year doctoral student at DCMI, was honored with the Poster Award of the “Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM)” located at the “Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne” (Switzerland) during the presentation of her research work, at the CECAM School “Hybrid Quantum Mechanics / Molecular Mechanics (QM/MM) Approaches to Biochemistry and Beyond”
This prize aims to distinguish the exceptional involvement of staff or groups of staff from “research support professions”. It comes with an endowment of €5,000 to be reinvested in the team’s projects.
Dris Ihiawakrim from the Electron Microscopy platform is one of the 2021 winners of this prize.
….in recognition of her outstanding work entitled “Ionic liquids for nanoelectronics applications by first-principles modeling” contributed to the E-MRS 2021 Fall Meeting (Symposium G: “Computer-aided materials modelling: fundamental and applied insights merging physics and chemistry viewpoints at the atomic-scale”, www.european-mrs.com/meetings/2021-fall-meeting).
