On July 21-23, 2016 the Bhattacharyay and Phillips research groups attended the 15th annual MERCURY conference on undergraduate computational chemistry to present ongoing research produced by the Blugold Super Computing Cluster. MERCURY-Molecular Education and Research Consortium in Undergraduate computational chemistRY provides a collaborative space for faculty mentors and students interested in computational chemistry research at primarily undergraduate institutions to collaborate and increase visibility of their work. Seven students and two faculty attended this year, Dr. Sudeep Bhattacharyay and his students: Lauren Adams, Tiffany Huynh, and Clorice Reinhardt. Dr. Jim Phillips was present with students: John Lanska, Skylee Lara, Camilla Soares, and Benjamin Wahl. The conference included an NSF/Research Corporation sponsored workshop on visualizing quantum dynamics and six keynote speakers with interests ranging from inorganic catalyst design to antimicrobial peptides. Besides these presentations from field leaders, students also gave a quick oral summary of their research to the conference attendees and presented in a poster session.
