Kayleigh Cassella graduated this Spring with a minor in chemistry. She is now pursuing her Ph.D. in physics at Berkeley (University of California) with the generous support of a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship. While at IU South Bend she conducted research in biochemistry, physical chemistry, and string theory.
The research she conducted with physical chemist Matt Marmorino has just been published in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry (vol. 111, no. 14) as Bounds to electronic expectation values for atomic and molecular systems. This is surely the first of many publications that will crowd her resume in the years to come. Congratulations, Kayleigh! Good luck in graduate school.
