We're "hard at work" @BrookhavenLab - definitely "totally focused on XAS"

Gotta stay awake somehow 🚲🚲🚲🚲

🗞️ ☀️ This week in MITEI news: cheaper solar cells + understanding combustion + greener raw materials for consumer products:

@KManthiram @ManthiramLab @MITEnergyConf @ClimateMIT @MITGlobalChange @MITMechE @MITEngineering

My annual announcement:

If you are working alone in the lab over winter break, be safe! There may be times when you are the only person in the building. Let a friend or labmate know what time you plan to be in the lab & what time you plan to be home.

At our annual All-You-Can-Eat Sushi outing, we welcomed Katie to the team! You know what they say: labs that eat together publish well-written, reproducible, fundamentally sound science together! #DoTheySayThat #WeDontCare #WeTryItAnyway #DelishFish #AndFriedRiceForNateDogg

Another well-earned doctoral candidacy was won today, by our very own Minju! Congrats on passing your thesis proposal! #JustInTimeForTheParty #축하합니다 #BossLady

Insightful seminar @MITChemE today by @SmithElectroLab who shared exciting work from the nanometer to kilometer scale for electrolysis! #electronsFTW @CUBoulder @NREL @tudelft

What an awesome talk from @KManthiram @ManthiramLab to end the NAS two-day workshop on “Advances in Electrochemistry”. He talked on the use of N2, H2O, and CO2 as the building blocks for chemicals we want and need!

October is over & everyone has moved on to AIChE fun, so here are our October travel highlights. #WeAreBadAtTwitter We have O-subgroup on our first group beamline trip @BerkeleyLab; Zack with Prof. em. Jean-Michel Savéant for #CVIS @ParisDiderot; and our jaunt to #ECS236!

It’s #PostdocAppreciationWeek! Thanks to our amazing postdocs for all they do. Check out the posts in our #WhiteheadPostdocProfiles series to meet some of them, learn about their research, and hear how they balance a full life with their science. #NPAW #NPAW2019

@TuftsEngineer @TuftsUniversity @KWhiteheadLab Next, @KManthiram taught us about "electrifying chemical synthesis," in his words. It will be exciting to see what opportunities electrochemistry opens up for greener chemical processes--a little potential seems to go a long way. How well will it scale? Time will tell.

Congrats to Joy on being selected for the @MathWorks Engineering #Fellowship! She has done a lot of great modeling work in her research using @MATLAB. A well-deserved honor! @MITChemE #SoManyPlots

If you're at #ACSSanDiego this week, come hang out with @KManthiram at one of his talks tomorrow! We're on the Electrochemical Epoxidation grind at 13:05, then it's all about Ammonia Synthesis at 15:50. Hope to see you there!

Please RT! Hiring a postdoc to construct gene circuits that track cellular transitions. Requires experience with tissue culture. Cancer biology background is a plus. More info:

The group is gearing up for the event of the decade - nay, the century - the Great #SaigalManthiram Wedding! Congrats @KManthiram and @saigal88 - we're so excited to share your special day tomorrow! #KarthishGetsHisSaiGal Below: happy faces & blue teeth at the lab wedding shower.

Zack and Joy had a blast at #NAM26 last week! Thanks to all of the presenters they spoke with, as well as everyone who came to their talks and shared interesting thoughts and ideas! No photos from the conference, but here is the obligatory #ChicagoBean picture:

Our group will be giving 2 talks @NAMcat26 : Joy's on atomically precise active sites for CO2 reduction is this Thursday at 10:30. Zack's talk on electrochemical ammonia oxidation is the same day, Thursday at 1:10 pm. We hope to see you there! #NAM26

We had lunch yesterday on the rooftop garden in Kendall to celebrate Sierra's graduation! Congrats, Sierra! We know you will do great things as you pursue your PhD @TexasChE! #MIT2019

Our third annual Manthiram Lab Candlepin Bowling Championship was last night - and the victor was Minju!! 🎳🏆 @KManthiram, meanwhile, is slowly improving, and only a couple of balls in total ended up outside the lane this year. #squad

Congrats to Michał, whose 10.27 Project Lab team won their team competition! Michał also won an award for having a top-10 best poster in #SuperUROP. Quite the performance to end the year! 🏆🏆🎉

Congrats to Manthiram Lab members recognized at the @MITChemE Awards Ceremony this week! UROPs Sierra and Michal + Grad Students Joy, Joseph, and @ReadMeLikeANook are featured. And @KManthiram won the Grad Teaching Award! Preview GSC-X's tribute to him:

If you'll be at #ACSOrlando, catch @DengtaoYang's talk on benzylic C-N bond carbonylation with CO2, 3:40 Monday afternoon (ORGN 235). Then @KManthiram's on electrochemical ammonia formation and oxidation is 10:40 Tuesday morning (ENFL 314).

Belated Pi Day celebration with the crew, featuring both fruit pies and pizza pies. 🍕Also board games. But no advisor! 😢 Hope you feel better soon, @KManthiram!

Amazing group at the @GordonConf this week in Galveston! Great science all around. See you all next time! @USCMarinescu @TheWarrenLab @BrenLab @ShafaatLab @jkuooo @jsandersonlab @MartinGroupBU @PanetierBU @BroereDaniel @lucie_nurdin @MayerPCET @ManthiramLab #GRC #RealTimeChem

Congrats to Joy for winning gold in Intermediate Women's Sparring at the 2019 Princeton ECTC Tournament! (Look, we've got killer moves outside of lab too! 🥋🙃)

The group had a great time making dumplings together for Lunar New Year recently. Thanks to Zack for organizing and Joy for teaching us this art! Judging by the number of dumplings that unfolded while cooking, we still have a lot to learn...
