Best Poster Awards for Sheuly Ghosh and Florian Deißenbeck
MPIE researchers awarded at Psi-k Conference 2022
Dr. Sheuly Ghosh and Florian Deißenbeck were awarded with poster prizes at the Psi-k Conference 2022. The conference took place in Lausanne, Switzerland, and is the largest Europe-based event on first-principles computational materials science.
Sheuly Ghosh presented a poster about the short range order and phase stability in a CrCoNi medium entropy alloy. At MPIE, she is working on alternatives to cost intensive ab-initio methods for calculating finite temperature predictions in complex materials. She uses machine-learning potentials that can reduce computing effort drastically while preserving ab-initio accuracy. Ghosh studied physics at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and joined MPIE in 2021 as a postdoctoral research fellow in the department “Computational Materials Design”.
Florian Deißenbeck is a PhD researcher in the “Atomistic Modelling” group at MPIE, where he and his colleagues develop novel methods to describe electrochemical reactions at the atomistic level in first principles molecular dynamics simulations. His poster at the Psi-k conference showed how joint theory and experimental work reveals the mechanistic details of charge transfer reactions at electrified solid/liquid interfaces under potential control. Deißenbeck studied physics at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf before joining MPIE.
The Psi-k conference brings together over 1000 participants from across the globe and is the largest in electronic studies. Its goal is to develop fundamental theories, algorithms, and computer codes in order to understand, predict, and design materials properties and functions.
