Welcome to the Sholl Research Group
In Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech
We are a computational group made up of knowledgable engineers on the cutting edge of material design.
Dr. David Sholl with newly minted 2014 PhDs: Dr. Kelly Nicholson, Dr. Ambarish Kulkarni, Dr. Daniel Wei (left to right).
We use atomistic simulations, both ab initio and classical, to provide a glimpse into atomic level interactions that dictate macroscopic behavior. We are a group of many members from all parts of the world, but we like to think that we integrate rather well.
The entire Sholl group in the Ford Environmental Science and Technology atrium.
