GBOLADE O. KAYODE
Gbolade is currently a graduate student in the Montemore group. His research interests includes computational catalysis and materials design, employing quantum mechanical techniques like density functional theory (DFT) to design more effective catalysts and materials. He enjoys traveling and watching soccer.
Chukwudi is a first year graduate student in the Montemore group in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department at Tulane University. He has a background in Chemical Engineering (Covenant University, 2016) with current research interests in computational material science which involves employing quantum mechanical techniques like density functional theory (DFT) to design more effective catalysts and materials. In his personal time he enjoys traveling, reading novels, watching Soccer, Anime, TV shows and movies.
Gloria is currently a graduate student in the Montemore group in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department at Tulane University. She graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana, with a BSc in Chemical Engineering in 2018. Her current research interests are in computational material science which involves employing machine learning methods and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. She enjoys traveling, music, and interacting with young people.
Attended the University of Pittsburgh as an undergraduate with a major in chemical engineering. Current research area is computer simulations of light-matter interactions with the goal of identifying new materials for solar applications. Outside of school I like to record music, run, and travel.
Shengjie Zhang is a postdoctoral fellow in the Montemore group at Tulane University. He received his BS and MS at Shanghai JiaoTong University and PhD at the University of Alabama. He has previously worked as a postdoc at U of Alabama and Louisiana State University. His work is focusing on computational studies (DFT method) of single atom alloys / trimetallic systems, surfaces properties, catalytic reactions on surfaces, and catalyst design. He likes watching movies and working out in his personal time.
Sarah is a graduate student in the Montemore group at Tulane University. She graduated from Montana State University with a degree in chemical engineering. Her current research is in using density functional theory to analyze steps of methane steam reforming. In her free time, Sarah loves to watch movies, discuss Star Wars, and paint.
Once a lowly farmhand, Avery escaped to academia with dreams of helping the environment. Attending Loyola University New Orleans, he majored in chemistry and found a passion for computer programming. At Tulane, Avery explores the mysteries of material systems using computational chemistry methods. In his free time, Avery enjoys rock climbing, learning Spanish, playing TTRPGs, and sipping coffee exceptionally slowly.
Hajar received her BS and MS in chemical engineering from Yazd University and the Sharif University of Technology. Her current research area is excited state dynamics for plasmonic catalysis. In her free time, she likes to travel, watch movies, and hang out with her friends.
Leon is a graduate student in Tulane University’s chemical engineering program. Before Tulane, he obtained his bachelor’s in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware. He is co-advised by Dr Hank Ashbaugh and Dr Matt Montemore. Currently, he uses molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning techniques to model and analyze the properties of cavitand molecules. Leon is an avid Liverpool fan, in his free time he likes to play football, travel, and try new foods.
