The Ng group had an action-packed spring semester:

Zhaokai Dong and Megha Bedi both passed their qualifying exams.

Cheng's second paper is out at ES&T, using molecular modeling to predict protein-binding affinity for novel fluoroether PFAS.

Our collaborative paper with ETH colleagues landed on the cover of ES&T!

We welcomed a new undergraduate researcher for the summer, Alexis Yates, via the REU Program led by Professor McCarthy in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering. Lexi is working in a highly collaboratie project together with the Gilbertson and Khanna groups.

The Ng group celebrated the end of the Spring semester in style!
