Ben Levine receives award

Chemistry Professor Benjamin Levine was awarded the American Chemical Society COMP OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in Computational Chemistry by the American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Computers in Chemistry. 

This award provides support for outstanding junior faculty doing research in computational chemistry to present their work at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society.  Prof. Levine received this award in recognition of his work developing and applying first-principles computational methods to understand how the structure of semiconductor nanomaterials determines their optoelectronic properties.  He will travel to the Spring 2017 meeting in San Francisco, CA to give a presentation on this work titled “Multireference Quantum Chemistry and Conical Intersections at the Nanoscale.”
