Charbonneau Research Group
Welcome to Prof. Patrick Charbonneau's Group Page
Graduate students and postdocs interested in joining Prof. Charbonneau's lab are encouraged to contact with us.
- 02/14/2013 Congratulations to Prof. Charbonneau who has received a prestigious 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship!
- 12/03/2012 Prof. Charbonneau will lead a first-year seminar on the chemistry and physics of cooking this upcoming spring semester. Find out more at the Duke Research Blog here and here.
- 11/13/2012 Prof. Charbonneau and his collaborators have taken a fresh look at disordered packings of spheres. Their latest simulations reveal the surprising universality of the phenomenon and also unexpected features (see more in PRL). A recent profile of Prof. Charbonneau also recently appeared in Science News.
- 08/27/2012 Patrick Charbonneau and his collaborators have taken another crack at understanding the nature of glass. Their latest simulations show that a key assumption of theoretical chemists and physicists to explain the molecular structure of glass is wrong (see PNAS and a Duke research report).
- 08/13/2012 Congratulations to Diana Fusco, who was granted the Paul M. Gross merit fellowship for the Spring 2013.
- 08/10/2012 Congratulations to Prof. Charbonneau, who received a mention for teaching excellence for the Spring 2012's Chem 166 from Duke's Dean of Arts and Science and Dean of Academic Affairs.
- 08/03/2012 Congratulations to Timothy Barnum, a summer researcher in the Charbonneau group, who won the Chemistry REU presentation award.
- Jan 2012 Prof. Charbonneau and collaborators have taken another crack at the glass problem. Read more in the recent issue of Physical Review Letters .
- March 2012 Congratulations to Prof. Patrick Charbonneau, who has been named a winner of the highly competitive ACS HP Outstanding Junior Faculty Award for 2012. Prof. Charbonneau will be recognized at the ACS National Meeting in San Diego this spring, at which he will make a research presentation.
- Oct 2011 Prof. Charbonneau and collaborators have made significant progress on the glass problem by examining its dimensional dependence. Read more in their recent Physical Review Letters and at Duke Research.
- Congratulations to Prof. Patrick Charbonneau! The National Science Foundation has awarded a Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER) to Prof. Patrick Charbonneau. Charbonneau will use the projected five-year award to understand the self-assembly of crystallizing proteins and of colloidal microphases.
