Congratulations to Jon and Kyle for publishing their first paper in Crystal Growth & Design! They are killing it, same as zineb kills fungi and pests! link
In a collaboration with colleagues from the SMU’s Earth Department and Lyle School of Engineering we are launching a new SMU Research Cluster!
We had our new group pic taken, which turned out really nice. Later that day we went on a lunch, and the guys from the Tsarevsky group offered to take our pic, which turned very candid (I guess only Kyle was truly prepared for the pic).
We had great time at APS collecting diffraction data on model planetary ices! Thank you Andrey and Wenqian for building an excellent beamline and thank you Hayden and Ben for the help with data collection!
Tom became one of the 300 members of the International Center for Diffraction Data (ICDD).
It was our pleasure to have Robert Dinnebier (Max Planck Institute) and Craig Brown (NIST) visit us at SMU. They both are a long-time supporters of our group!
Liliana joined our group as a postdoc! Welcome Liliana!
Kyle won the prestigious Hamilton Scholarship and was selected as a Summer Research Fellow. Congratulations Kyle!!!
Matt joined our group, as an undergrad researcher! Welcome Matt!
Tom gave a lecture at University of Barcelona, Spain.
Together with colleagues from the Departments of Chemistry and Earth Sciences at SMU, our group got support for a research cluster on “Comparative Planetology: Geology, Chemistry, and Physics in Current and Future NASA Mission Science“.
Christina won a Texas Space Grant! Congratulations!!!
Martin Etter from the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) stayed with us for two weeks! We did some interesting research together and he gave an excellent lecture at SMU!
Tom gave at lecture at UT San Antonio, TX.
We received a grant from the Welch Foundation to study minerals on Titan!
Jewel joined the group as an undergrad! Welcome Jewel!
Tom gave a lecture at New University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
Tom gave an invited talk at the 25th Congress of the Society of Chemists and Technologists of Macedonia in Ohrid, Macedonia
Tom gave an invited talk at the 16th Conference of Materials Science & Technology (MS&T18) in Columbus, OH.
Welcome Jon, Christina and Kyle!
The group was born!
