We are excited to launch a new website (www.cv-ml.com), which allow researchers and educators to use deep-learning-based algorithms to automatically analyze electrochemical data such as cyclic voltammograms. Check it out!
Congratulations to Ben Natinsky, Jesus Iñiguez, and Xun Guan for receiving their Ph.D. in Chemistry! It has been Chong’s great pleasure to spend five years with them! Also, congratulations to Brianna Mai as a departmental scholar for receiving her M.A. in Chemistry! Good job and well deserved!
Our graduate student Danlei Xiang receives the 2022-2023 UCLA Graduate Division Dissertation Year Fellowship (DYF), among other chemistry & biochemistry graduate student researchers in the department. With a $20,000 stipend plus standard tuition and fees, the DYF is intended to support doctoral students who are within one year of completing and filing their dissertations. Congratulations, Danlei!
Chong received the UCLA 2022 Alpha Chi Sigma (AXΣ) Glenn T. Seaborg Award, which is presented every year and recognizes outstanding achievements of early-career faculty in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, UCLA. The Glenn T. Seaborg award places an emphasis on honoring the recipient’s research and scholarly impact, as well as outstanding teaching, mentoring, and professional services.
This award is sponsored by the Beta Gamma (ΒΓ) chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma (AXΣ), the only national co-educational, professional chemistry fraternity in the United States. The Beta Gamma (ΒΓ) chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma (AXΣ) at UCLA was founded on March 30, 1935.
This award is presented at the annual Glenn T. Seaborg Award Banquet held at the Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica on the evening of May 7th, 2022. Thank you so much for the reception!
Chong has been selected to receive a 2022 Sloan Research Fellowship. Awarded annually since 1955, the Sloan Fellowships honor scholars in the U.S. and Canada whose creativity, leadership, and independent research achievements make them some of the most promising researchers working today.
