Congratulations to Ben Hoar and Danlei Xiang for receiving their Ph.D. in Chemistry, pending the formal approval of their PhD thesis. It has been Chong’s great honor to spend five years with them! Best wishes to their future career!
Chong is promoted to Associate Professor with tenure, as recently highlighted at the departmental website of UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry. Chong joined the UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry faculty in 2017 as an assistant professor.
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!
In celebrating the graduation of our group members, the Liu group had quite a bit fun at the Barney’s, for the first time since the pandemic, and took the belated group photos!
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 receives the National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER), NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. We are grateful for NSF’s five-year support for us to develop solution catalysis containing seemingly incompatible steps. Thank you very much!
