Jeffrey Evanseck received B.S. degrees in computer science and chemistry from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in computational and theoretical organic chemistry from UCLA. He joined Duquesne University in 2000 as the Director of the Center for Computational Sciences to promote education, research, and small business growth in Southwest Pennsylvania. He has been deeply involved with the American Chemical Society as Chair of the South Florida Section and Secretary and Chair of the Computers in Chemistry Division. He was honored as the first Fr. Joseph Lauritis Chair in Teaching and Technology at Duquesne for his scientific distinctions in chemical theory, computation, and education.
Giannis Mpourmpakis received a B.S. in Chemistry, an M.S. in Applied Molecular Spectroscopy, and a Ph.D. in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry from the University of Crete. He was then a post doctoral “Marie-Curie” research fellow at the Center for Catalytic Science and Technology (University of Delaware) for the outgoing phase, and then at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of the Foundation for Research and Technology in Hellas, Greece, for the return phase. He then held a senior researcher position at the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation at the University of Delaware before joining the University of Pittsburgh in 2013.
Jung-Kun Lee received his B.S and M.S. in Inorganic Materials Engineering from the Seoul National University in Korea. He also received his Ph.D in Materials Science & Engineering from the same university. He then won the highly competitive Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship of Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2002. He worked there for more than five years, with a promotion to technical staff member in January, 2005. He finally joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pittsburgh in 2007. Jung Kun Lee holds more than 10 patents on the dielectric and optical applications of functional materials.
Hyung Kim received his Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. After a post doctoral position at the University of Colorado, Boulder, he joined the Chemistry department of Carnegie Mellon University. He was a Distinguished Visiting Associate Professor of Physics at the Seoul National University, a Visiting Associate Professor of Chemistry, University of Colorado, Boulder, and an Adjunct Professor of Physics at Korea University. He is currently a KIAS Scholar at the School of Computational Sciences at the Korea Institute for Advanced Study. He also held the position of Chair of Chemistry of Carnegie Mellon University from 2002 to 2016.
