Songchen is an undergraduate student from Peking University on a scholarship through the Danforth center at UCLA. Having sampled southern California he is finishing off his stay in northern California in the THG lab!
Dr. Li obtained her PhD at Tsinghua University with focus on the electronic structure and chemical bonding analyses of the compounds containing heavy metalic elements. She will be working on methodology and applications to catalytic reactivity.
Welcome to new visiting scholar Dr. Farnaz Heidar-Zadeh who will be visiting Berkeley for one year before assuming her assistant professorship in Canada! Farnaz is a FWO-Flanders Fellow and CAS Future Leader!
