Jillian and Erik recently returned from Saudi Arabia where the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) hosted the 2016 Conference: Emerging Concepts and Materials in Solar Energy Conversion from October 31st – November 2nd. The conference was a great space for sharing novel ideas and recent discoveries in the field, bringing together top researchers from different disciplines including chemistry, physics and materials science.

Buriak Group – past and present!
We had a big representation of Buriak Group members travel to Beijing, China for the ACS Symposium: Innovation in Molecular Science. Along with talks and posters from past and current group members, Jillian was one of the conference coordinators. But, as you can see from the photo – it wasn’t just all work and no play!
Check out the new Chemistry of Materials editorial and the Joongang Ilbo_News (KAIST Workshop) about the recent International Workshop and exciting new ideas in emerging materials!
Jillian recently returned from an excellent trip to Korea where she visited KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). This beautiful campus hosted the International Workshop on Emerging Functional Materials, where Jillian was invited to give a talk on her current work. Later this year she’ll be headed to other international locations including China, Saudi Arabia and the Netherlands!
