MICDE Seminar: Edward Maginn, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Notre Dame
November 21 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
NCRC Building 10 Research Auditorium
Bio: Edward Maginn is the Dorini Family Professor of Energy Studies and Chair of the department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State University in 1987. He worked at Procter and Gamble for a short time before starting his graduate studies and receiving his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1995. Since then he has been a Professor at the University of Notre Dame, Chair of his department since 2012, and Dorini Family Professor of Energy studies since 2013. His professional activities include being co-founder of Ionic Research Technologies, LLC, trustee for Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering Corporation, and member of the Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal of Physical Chemistry.
Prof. Maginn research focus is on developing a fundamental understanding of the link between the physical properties of materials and their chemical constitution, mainly using molecular simulations. Much of his work is devoted to applications related to energy and the environment. His research group develops the open source Monte Carlo code Cassandra, an efficient and parallel software package for simulating the thermodynamics and phase equilibria of fluids.
