Gaurav Vishwakarma has been selected for the 2020 Computational Chemistry and Materials Science Summer Institute at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
Gaurav Vishwakarma, a PhD candidate in Dr. Hachmann's research group has been selected for the 2020 Computational Chemistry & Materials Science (CCMS) Summer Institute held at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Gaurav will spend ten weeks at LLNL working under his assigned mentor, Dr. Tadashi Ogitsu.
LLNL plans to hold this year's CCMS Summer Institute from June 8 to August 14, 2020. This program offers the selected graduate students the opportunity to work directly with leading LLNL researchers on the development and application of cutting edge methods in computational materials science and chemistry as well as other related areas of computational science. The focus of this year's, 2020 CCMS Summer Institute is “Data Science Challenges in Materials and Chemistry” in order to highlight challenges and research opportunities in the development and application of data analytics to optimization of existing materials and to searching for yet unknown materials with desirable properties.
Each student will spend ten weeks at LLNL as a guest of an LLNL host scientist working on a computational project in the host’s area of expertise. In addition, leading researchers from universities and national labs will give a series of mini-courses for the students. These courses will cover state-of-the-art and emerging computational methods in materials science and chemistry.
