Fortnightly Description

We are living through an era of two colliding megatrends: an exponential explosion in computing power and an ever-warming climate. How can we harness the power of the former to mitigate the risks of the latter? To get the answer, we need to look no further than to Yumin Zhang, doctoral researcher in Materials Science […]

Guest Bio

Yumin Zhang - Doctoral Student, Carnegie Mellon University

Yumin Zhang is a final-year PhD candidate, a Canadian NSERC fellow, in Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Venkat Viswanathan. She also holds B.Eng and Master's degree in Materials Engineering from McGill University in Canada. Her current research focuses on building a seamless simulation-experimental workflow in partnership with experimentalists to enable accelerated electrolyte design for Lithium metal batteries.
