Brianna Collins is a fourth-year graduate student in the Goodpaster group. An Arlington, Texas, native, she earned her undergraduate degree in chemistry and mathematics from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Her research focuses on catalysis for electrochemical systems. In her spare time, Brianna likes to run. “It’s good exercise and a great way to explore the city.” At home, she plays with her cats, experiments in the kitchen, and does art. She adds, “Not that there’s much spare time!”

Postdoctoral Researcher, Rutgers University-Newark
The Pavanello Research Group is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral associate to join as soon as December 2020 or early 2021. The project will involve designing and developing complex Density Functional Theory embedding software, thus, proficiency in Python as well as low-level languages like FORTRAN is required. The successful candidate will (1) develop computational protocols based on density embedding and orbital-free DFT for modeling materials interfaces, liquids and electrochemical setups in and out of equilibrium; (2) co-advise graduate students on computational projects; (3) co-advise undergraduate students on computational projects.
