Please find below our latest newsletter, with highlights and news linked to the MARVEL community.
This month, read about the key role of inter-site Hubbard interactions for the correct energetics of spinel Li-ion cathode materials. You can read too about MARVEL's William Curtin being the recipient of the Irwin Gold Medal. The award recognizes his pioneering contributions to multiscale mechanics modeling of materials: congratulations to Bill!
Mark your calendars for the upcoming MARVEL Distinguished Lectures by Prof. Claudia Felser (May 2) and Prof. Emmanouil Kioupakis (June 20).
Most importantly, we are now welcoming Nicola Nosengo as our new Communication officer for MARVEL. Nicola joins us after having had many years of experience as a science writer (recently with the NCCR Robotics), and he is currently the chief editor of Nature Italy. Nicola is already well integrated in the management team (and is the author of the research highlight below, among others). We are very thankful for Carey Sargent's contributions and wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
