AirUCI faculty Jack Brouwer spoke at Stark State College in North Canton, Ohio on October 3, 2018 for the 18th annual Ohio Fuel Cell Symposium.  He made the case that, while wind and solar farms are generating clean power at lower and lower prices, it's not always when the energy is needed.  Fuel cells could change that equation, eliminating the need for large coal and nuclear power plants and leading to a zero-emissions electric grid.  Read the article  
Thu, 09/27/2018 - Fri, 09/28/2018
AirUCI faculty Annmarie Carlton is hosting a workshop on deep learning in multiphase chemistry in conjunction with the U.S. Army.  The event is to be held at the Beckman Center September 27-28, 2018 and will focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning, which lend themselves to chemical discovery in this area.

Dr. Nanna Myllys, postdoc in AirUCI's Jim Smith and Benny Gerber groups, will present a tutorial about using Atmospheric Cluster Dynamic Code (ACDC) on August 28 at 2 pm in Rowland Hall room 390.  ACDC is a tool used to study new-particle formation, able to simulate cluster kinetics and population dynamics; this means for instance, cluster evaporation rates, cluster distribution, particle formation rate, step-by-step growth pathways, etc.  All are welcome to attend.
Tue, 08/14/2018 - Fri, 08/17/2018
AirUCI faculty Manabu Shiraiwa is organizing an outreach event for high school students to be held on campus August 14 -17, 2018.  Presentations on AirUCI research, atmospheric chemistry, careers in science, and other topics will be held in Rowland Hall room 390 at various times during the event.
Thu, 06/21/2018 - Fri, 06/22/2018
AirUCI faculty Manabu Shiraiwa is organizing the second annual meeting of the Sloan MOCCIE group to be held June 21-22, 2018 in Austin, TX.  A key part of this group is AirUCI faculty Doug Tobias.  The workshop will focus on progress made to date and will also define goals for the coming year.
