Dr. John Mauro

Relaxation is Everywhere
As a nonequilibrium material, a glass is continually relaxing towards its metastable supercooled liquid state.  A comprehensive understanding of glass relaxation is of critical importance for many high-tech applications of glass, including optical fiber, glass substrates for liquid crystal displays, and chemically strengthened cover glass for electronic devices.  In this presentation, I will review the current state-of-the-art in understanding the dynamics of glass relaxation, including the physical origins of its non-Arrhenius and non-exponential characters

Tom Mallouk Joining Penn Chemistry

Prof. Thomas Mallouk, who is currently the Evan Pugh University Professor of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Physics, and Engineering Science and Mechanics at Penn State University will be joining the Penn Chemistry Department as the second Vagelos Chair in Energy Research in the Department of Chemistry, effective March 2019. A member of the National Academy of Sciences, Tom is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking work leading to fundamental advances in our understanding of materials chemistry and nanoscience.

 

Megan Matthews Named Scialog CMC Fellow

Assistant Professor Megan Matthews has been named a Scialog Fellow on the Chemical Machinery of the Cell by the Research Corporation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. More information on the program can be found here.

David Christianson to be next Department Chair

David Christianson, Roy and Diana Vagelos Professor in Chemistry and Chemical Biology, will assume the role of Department Chair effective July 1, 2018. David succeeds Gary Molander, the Hirschmann-Makineni Professor of Chemistry, who has served as Chair for the past 9 years.

 

James Petersson Honored by Penn Medical School

Associate Professor James Petersson is a co-recipient of the 2018 Jane M. Glick Graduate Student Teaching Award. The award was established in 2010 by the Glick family in remembrance of Dr. Jane Glick and her dedication to the Biomedical Graduate Studies programs. The award is given to those faculty that have demonstrated a "commitment to educating and training the next generation of scientists that exemplifies the type of scientist and educator Jane Glick represented."
