Dr. Tianshu Li and his collaborator at UC Davis have received a three-year, $639,105 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for the project “An integrated computational suite for large-scale modeling of crystal nucleation.” Dr. Li is the lead principal investigator on the project. The team will deploy an integrated, large-scale, open-source computational suite for modeling crystal nucleation under realistic conditions. The infrastructure will enable broad applications in materials synthesis, surface engineering, membrane fouling, and inorganic mineralization. The project is co-funded by two NSF divisions: Division of Materials Research and Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transportation Systems. GW's share of the award is $328,338.
