Daniel Choi, Chemical Physics Concentrator in the Class of 2020, has been featured on Brown's homepage as a "Student Focus." Daniel received an Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award (UTRA) for research in Prof. Brenda Rubenstein's Group.

This year the Department of Chemistry welcomed 14 Ph.D. students from diverse backgrounds and three different countries.  We welcomed them all on August 29, and we are very excited they chose to embark on their graduate career in the Department of Chemistry at Brown. We wish them all the best in their academic endeavors. 

Researchers from Brown University have assembled complex macroscale superstructures from pyramid-shaped nanoparticle building blocks. The research, described in the journal Nature, demonstrates a promising new way to bring the useful properties of nanoparticles to macroscale materials and devices.

The Department of Chemistry welcomes Carson Cole and Maria Vargas Rivera, two students from the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP) for Summer 2018.

The Department of Chemistry highlighted 14 Ph.D. recipients and 14 masters degree recipients, followed by presenting 30 baccalaureate degrees in Biochemistry and Chemistry.

An article accepted for publication to the Journal of Chemical Physics has been highlighted in Scilight, the American Institute of Physics’ news website. The publication is authored by Dr. Yan Zhao, who recently defended her thesis, and Professor Richard Stratt. 

The department presents awards annually to undergraduate and graduate students for accomplishments in academics and leadership. Congratulations to all students who received awards!

Joy Jiang ’19, biochemistry concentrator and Andrew Ton ’20, chemical physics concentrator, have been awarded Royce Fellowships by Brown University for independent research projects.
