From Supramolecular Chemistry to Processors

Edward Dale (2012—2016) is starting a career at Intel where he will be making the leap from studying supramolecular systems to engineering processors at Hillsboro, Oregon. Edward is the latest of a string — which includes Alex Shveyd, Subhadeep Basu and Nathan Strutt — of ex–group members to embark on this journey to Intel. Good luck Edward!

Sourav Moves On and Up

Dr. Sourav Saha (2003—2007), presently an Assistant Professor at Florida State University (FSU), will be joining Clemson University as an Associate Professor of Chemistry in August 2016. Sourav's research program lies at the interface of organic, supramolecular and materials chemistry and focuses on developing stimuli–responsive materials that can function as novel anion receptors and sensors, tunable semiconductors, light–harvesting and emitting agents, and drug-delivery systems. In addition to having published a dozen independent more...
