Indrani Choudhuri joined the Truhlar group as a postdoctoral researcher in June 2018. Earlier that year, Indrani received her Ph.D. in theoretical and computational chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology Indore. Her current research interests include photocatalysis with metal-organic frameworks and nanoparticle composites, the performance of newly developed functionals for structural and electronic properties of complex materials, and the use of density functional theory to study electronic, magnetic, and optical properties of complex systems.
Siriluk Kanchanakungwankul is a third-year graduate student in the Truhlar group. She completed her undergraduate and master degrees in chemistry at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand. Her current research uses theoretical and computational chemistry to study the rate of reaction and tunneling of double proton transfer tautomerization of porphycene in both gas phase and on a silver surface. She is also in the initial stages of two theoretical projects involving MOFs: xylene separations and production of Cu(0) catalysts.

Postdoctoral Fellow - Computational Chemistry, Villanova University (Jorn Group)
The Department of Chemistry at Villanova University and Dr. Ryan Jorn invite applications for a postdoctoral research position in computational chemistry with responsibilities in method development simulating electron and ion transport at electrode interfaces. The position is renewable and also comes with opportunities, but no obligations, for teaching experiences in a primarily undergraduate setting. The area of research is the development of theory and simulations to describe electron/ion transfer in lithium-ion batteries. Hence, lithium-based electrolytes and electrode materials will provide the point of application for the methods developed. Opportunities to pursue independent research interests will also be provided. Apply here.
