MICDE Seminar: Nandini Ananth, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Cornell University
October 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Bio: Nandini Ananth is an associate professor in the department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University. She received her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Stella Maris College in Chennai, India, and a Masters in chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. Nandini moved to the United States in the fall of 2003 to pursue doctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley in William Miller’s group, working on developing semiclassical methods to model quantum dynamical behavior in complex chemical reactions. Upon graduation, she accepted a position as postdoctoral scholar in Thomas Miller’s group at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where her research focused on developing path-integral methods for the simulation of electronically nonadiabatic processes in the condensed phase. She joined the faculty of the department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University in the Fall of 2012, and during her time here has received the Cottrell Scholar Award, NSF CAREER Award, NSF EAGER Award, Sloan Research Fellowship, and Army Research Office’s Young Investigator Award.
Prof. Ananth is being hosted by Prof. Geva (Chemistry). If you would like to meet her during her visit please send an email to email@example.com
