Jonathan has been named a Barry Goldwater fellow for 2020. Way to go!
Our study on using the heat-bath flavor of selected CI to compute protonic densities of multicomponent systems has been published in JCTC. We are pretty pleased with the results from this study and learned a lot that we hope to follow up on with regards to the need for non HF-orbitals for multicomponent calculations.

Ethan and M’s paper on using selected configuration interaction techniques to calculate vibrational excitations has been published! Check it out here: https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5126510
A new graduate student, Ethan Lesko, has joined us for the summer. Ethan will be an incoming chemistry graduate student here at Mizzou this fall. He will be working on benchmarking vibrational configuration interaction techniques that we have been developing over the past year. Welcome Ethan!
Our paper on using continuous-filter convolutional neural networks to fit global potential energy surfaces has been published in JCP. Go check it out here: doi: 10.1063/1.5093908 .
It has been a while since we have updated the group website. The most important news to report is that we have welcomed a new graduate student, Muhammad Ardiansyah, into the group! M, as he is known, will be working on improving the generation of training data for fitting quantum neural network potentials and designing new quantum neural network potentials using continuous-filter convolutional neural networks. Welcome, M!
Thanks to advice from my former postdoc colleague Yang Yang, we now have a website and hosting. As this is my first website since 8th grade (I believe we used Dreamweaver 2.0 and wrote pure HTML back then), website development has changed significantly since my last go at this. I still need to figure out how WordPress works and get the various pages up to date. More updates to come…
