Official advertisement forthcoming, but Prof. Burdette & I will have a joint postdoc position in MOF-based materials starting as soon as September 2022 related to the work that we are doing on Metal-Organic Frameworks.
Check out our groups and contact us for more information ahead of release:
Congratulations to former group members Wèirán Sasha Gao and Benjamin Drury on their recent marriage (to each other)! We are all so happy for you both and wish you the greatest joy and success and support that the future may hold.
Oh, and you each still owe Grimm a manuscript…
Congratulations to our newest group graduates. On Thursday May 12th 2022, Roy Stoflet (above) was hooded in honor of his M.S. degree. On Saturday May 14th, undergrads Angel Fernandez Sorondo, Antonio Ramirez, Isabella Ferrari Carrubba, Michelle Frasch, and Ryan Hanna were awarded their B.S. degrees. Congratulations to all!
Congratulations to Julia and Rebecca for winning the end-of-year departmental awards for research and teaching! Well done! Pictured above, Grimm, Rebecca, Julia, and Roy.

Congratulations to Roy Stoflet, who successfully defended his Master’s thesis on Thursday, April 21st! Roy has been a part-time student in the group who has been absolutely critical to the growth and characterization of bismuth-based semiconductors. Congratulations again!
Materials Today wrote a nice news piece on the quat-derived nanostructure (QDN) work of our Drexel collaborators, Hussein Badr, Kiana Montazeri, and Varun Natu in Professor Michel Barsoum’s group. Thanks again to group member Julia Martin for her help with that original study!

Summer research has ended and the 2021–2022 school year is about to start, let’s congratulate all of our summer researchers!
F-to-B: Glori Miranda-Mendez, Nate Keyes, Michelle Frasch, Julia Martin, Emma Pellerin, Abby Berube, Cal Lebak, Bekah Rothacher, and Ryan Hanna
L-to-R: Ryan Hanna, Bekah Rothacher, Glori Miranda-Mendez, Nate Keyes, Michelle Frasch, Julia Martin, Emma Pellerin, Abby Berube, and Cal Lebak
Masks are again the order of the day, and that’s tough at lunchtime. Congratulations to all for the great progress and camaraderie developed over the last ten weeks. Not pictured: Angel Fernandez-Sorondo.
Congratulations to our graduating fourth-year undergraduates, Becca Dawley, Jocelyn Mendes, and Kweku Colecraft! Each of our fourth-year students won prizes for their research. Becca won the American Institute of Chemists’s award for chemistry undergraduates. Jocelyn won WPI’s Salisbury Prize and the Provost’s MQP Award for outstanding MQP research in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Kweku won the Provost’s MQP Award for outstanding MQP research in Chemical Engineering. As a reminder, all fourth-year undergraduates at WPI complete a project in their field of study. We call it the “Major Qualifying Project” or MQP, but it is very similar to a senior thesis or capstone.
Congratulations to all three of you and best wishes for your ongoing, post-bachelor’s success!
The NSF offered fourth-year undergrad Jocelyn Mendes a 2021 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) award for graduate studies. Jocelyn’s award comes in the Division of Chemistry in the “Chemical Structure, Dynamics, and Mechanism” topic area. Congratulations Jocelyn!
