Departmental seminar by Professor Jianzhong Wu

“Molecular Models for Data-Driven Approaches to Materials Design”



Professor Jianzhong Wu, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Riverside


On June 18, Professor Jianzhong Wu from California, will give a seminar on “Molecular Models for Data-Driven Approaches to Materials Design”

Physics-based modeling and data science are complementary but progressed almost in parallel until very recently. Combination of physics-based modeling with data science will accelerate scientific progress for better understanding and more reliable predictions of the physicochemical properties and phase behavior of multicomponent chemical systems that are essential for engineering design of chemical products and processes. In this talk, I explore opportunities that may promote mutual understanding and potential intercourses between these intrinsically multidisciplinary fields. Illustrative examples will be given on how combination of physics-based modeling and data science yields useful guidelines for materials discovery and applications.

Professor Jianzhong Wu is a faculty member from the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering and a cooperating faculty of Mathematics Department at the University of California, Riverside. He received PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, and MS and BS degrees from Tsinghua University, Beijing. Dr. Wu’s research has been directed at development and application of statistical-mechanical methods for predicting the microscopic structure and physiochemical properties of inhomogeneous fluids, soft matter and biological systems.

 Participation is open to all interested people.
