The group wants to extend their congratulations to Chris for his outstanding presentation at the Graduate Student Showcase. Chris presented his work on predicting polymer solubility using machine learning, with a focus on model explainability and in-house experimental validation. This research examined a wide range of descriptors and architectures to predict polymer solubility, including graph-based and descriptor-based models. We are thrilled to announce that Chris not only presented brilliantly but also earned the title of ‘Outstanding Scholar,’ along with a scholarship award of $500. His achievements are a testament to his dedication and expertise.
