Dr. Mohammed Jabed joined as a new postdoc

Mohammed completed M.S. in Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. He moved to North Dakota State University (NDSU) and obtained Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry in 2020, where he studied surface and interface effects on excited-state processes in metal and semimetal nanoclusters. After the Ph.D. defense in October-2020, he started the first postdoctoral research in the late Dr. Tao Yu group at the University of North Dakota (UND) October-2020. At Yu’s group, he studied electron beam enhanced surface plasmon in Ag nanoclusters for N2 dissociation catalysis and excited state dynamics in graphene quantum dots (GQD) to tune the optical properties. He has joined the Kim group in November 2021, where he will study reaction mechanisms using ab initio and machine learning methods. Besides, he loves outdoor activities like – traveling, camping, and hiking.
