Elisa Calvo-Muñoz was an exchange student from Spain from August, 2009 to August, 2010.
In the spring semester of 2010, she built model structures of a variety of platinum nanoparticles.
In the summer of 2010, she developed and applied a confined random walk theory to
(i) the diffusion of explosives in metal organic frameworks,
(ii) the diffusion of water in proton exchange membranes of fuel cells, and
(iii) the diffusion of glassy iron.
Elisa received the traditional UT CMRG going away gift, a t-shirt with some of her modeling work on it.
In this case, structures of various
platinum nanoparticles that she built.
