Eisele Group News
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Brisendine as a Postdoctoral Researcher! In February 2018, he received his doctoral degree (Ph.D) from CCNY’s Physics Department. His thesis work was concerned with the information content, computational capacity, and charge transport properties of natural proteins, and he is fascinated by the connections between biology, computation, and energy transport. Dr. Brisendine will be working on modeling and optimizing the energy and charge transport properties of the group’s bio-inspired material systems.
We are pleased to welcome Pooja as our new Graduate student! Pooja is now enrolled for her doctoral program at the City University of New York under the mentorship of Dr. Eisele and has been part of The Eisele Research Group since April 2018. She is passionate about understanding the self-assembly processes and will be focusing on the self-assembly of peptides – light-harvesting materials.
May 23, 2018: Undergraduate Researcher, Niki, is the recipient of the 2018 Josh Dorn Undergraduate Research Award!
Niki Brisnovali is the winner of the 2018 Josh Dorn Undergraduate Research Award! The Josh Dorn Undergraduate Research Award is granted to an undergraduate researcher who demonstrates both outstanding leadership potential and excellence in fundamental research which addresses current societal challenges in the areas of health and renewable energy. The award includes a scholarship provided to the undergraduate student pursuing original research, scholarship, and creative work under the guidance of a research-active faculty member. This year, Niki has been selected because of “her impressive success as a researcher who has taken the lead on challenging projects early in her career as well as her outstanding dedication as a mentor towards new undergraduate students.”
Nico Yehya has been accepted to various prestigious doctoral schools! These include: Johns Hopkins University for study in Molecular Biophysics, Rockefeller University for study in Biosciences, University of California: San Diego, Yale University, and the University of Washington, the latter 3 for study in Physics! Nico has decided to pursue his PhD at Johns Hopkins University where he will study Molecular Biophysics!
The Coherent Revolution-20 laser was delivered today! This new pump laser supplies the power needed for our ultrafast spectroscopy investigations which include: energy harvesting and transport. Our Revolution-20 was funded by our recently awarded NSF CAREER grant award!
