  • Students attending the 2021 Sustainable Horizons Institute Sustainable Research Pathways Workshop
    • Sudha Vaishnavi Nannur, Wayne State University
    • Wenhuan Tan, Bellevue College
  • Nicole Avila, California State Polytechnic University-Pomona:
    • Inorganic Chemistry Undergraduate Poster Presentation Award at the 2021 Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) National Diversity in STEM Conference.
    • "I completed and participated in the SACNAS conference using my XSEDE EMPOWER research. After I spent much time practicing presenting my research, I finally presented to two judges. I was able to answer questions about the science behind my project and even questions regarding the spectra I have generated. I am happy to announce that I won the Inorganic Chemistry award. I plan to present my XSEDE EMPOWER research with more judges at the SCCUR conference on November 20th. I have already begun writing a new outline considering questions I was asked at the SACNAS conference." (written November 2021)
  • Spencer Bryngelson, Georgia Institute of Technology:
    • "It has been invaluable to work with students at different universities and from different backgrounds. At the same time, the students are selected such that the pool is filled with folks interested in my research. This makes things very convenient for me, and seems like a smart way to link up students and researchers. Having extra students available and their ability to interact with the group has been valuable for everyone involved." (written January 2022)
  • Yingrong Chen, Emory Oxford College:
    • Presented research at the 2021 Southeastern Regional Meeting of American Chemical Society (SERMACS) (LinkedIn post), Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference, and Oxford Research Scholars Spring Symposium.
    • "I feel that computational tools can accelerate and open new perspectives for my scientific research, and I have decided to be a computational biochemist in the future. I have gotten to learn computational chemistry in a systematic way. This is a valuable opportunity since most colleges do not offer computational classes at the undergraduate level." (written January 2022)
  • Damien Cooper, University of Southern Mississippi:
    • "At the beginning of November, I presented research based on this project at the Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society (SERMACS) in Birmingham, AL." (written December 2021)
  • Sudha Vaishnavi Nannur, Wayne State University:
    • "I have learned a lot throughout this semester at XSEDE. I am quite grateful for this program because it has given me such an incredible foundation in my machine learning and data science journey. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this." (written December 2021)
  • Bianca Ortega, Kean University:
    • "I have acquired such a generous amount of knowledge and skills in less than a year that I would not trade for anything. I am honored to be an intern for such an amazing program that has inspired me for the future." (written December 2021)
  • Ciara Richardson and Madison Winkeler, Murray State University:
  • Josh Vermaas, Michigan State University:
    • "The real power for the EMPOWER program has been in increasing accessibility of my computational research to new and emerging researchers. I'm a new assistant professor, with no grants but enough time to devote to meeting with a handful of undergraduates a few times a week to help them along in their first steps as computational scientists. Without the support the EMPOWER program provides, only the well-heeled students can access this tremendous undergraduate research experience, as they'd be doing the same work for college credit alone. Having the EMPOWER program offer this kind of hands on training democratizes the types of undergraduate researchers I can recruit. This means that my lab is bigger than it otherwise would be, and my postdocs have the opportunity to gain mentoring experience that a newly started lab would not be able to provide. Concretely, I think that the EMPOWER program has doubled the number of undergraduates working in the lab." (written January 2022)
  • Raquel Yupanqui, University of North Georgia:
