Research includes scanning tunneling microscopy and ultrafast photoemission spectroscopy.
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.
Zachary W. Ulissi joined Carnegie Mellon University in 2017, after doing his PhD at MIT and post-doc at Stanford. His research at MIT focused on the the applications of systems engineering methods to understanding selective nanoscale carbon nanotube devices and sensors under the supervision of Michael Strano and Richard Braatz. Prof. Ulissi did his postdoctoral work at Stanford with Jens Nørskov where he worked on machine learning techniques to simplify complex catalyst reaction networks, applied to the electrochemical reduction of N2 and CO2 to fuels. The Ulissi group builds on this foundation to model, understand, and design nanoscale interfaces using modern predictive methods to guide detailed molecular simulations.
Gurudev Dutt received his M.S. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Michigan. He then moved to Harvard University as a Research Associate where his team demonstrated coherent quantum control of electron and nuclear spin quantum bit (qubit) registers in diamond at room temperature. He then joined the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. He received the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award in 2009 and the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2010, and his achievements have been reported in local (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and national (NPR, NY Times) media.
