Cluster maintenance party in Boston

Helena, Qing, Tim and I all headed to Downtown Crossing to do a lot of maintenance on our cluster (replace the pdus on 5 nodes and put new ram in the zfs)! As you can tell from the pictures, they did all of the work while I just sat back and relaxed! Afterwards we went to Xinh Xinh to eat some vietnamese food that wasn't nearly spicy enough for our tastes.

We're moving to Bldg 66!

Our much awaited move has finally begun. The furniture came in to our new student offices on the 2nd floor of Bldg 66. Bldg 66 is that wacky IM Pei-designed 30-60-90 triangle of a building. Our very own resident photographer (Niladri) has taken wonderful photos of the work in progress. Check it out by clicking on this blog entry!

Welcome to Helena and Qing

The Kulik group welcomes new first year graduate students Helena Qi (Chemistry, Joined November 2014) and Qing Zhao (Mechanical engineering, joined September 2014)!  Qing works on our NSF-funded research in understanding quantum dot synthesis. Helena is getting her feet wet on understanding unusual lignin depolymerization pathways.


About Us

The Kulik group focuses on the development and application of new electronic structure methods and atomistic simulations tools in the broad area of catalysis.

Our Interests

We are interested in transition metal chemistry, with applications from biological systems (i.e. enzymes) to nonbiological applications in surface science and molecular catalysis.

Our Focus

A key focus of our group is to understand mechanistic features of complex catalysts and to facilitate and develop tools for computationally driven design.
