Today is Xi’s last day at Madison. He is going to Beijing Normal University-Zhuhai to start his independent academic career!
Xi has been very successful at UW-Madison. During his 2.5 years postdoc time, Xi developed the constrained nuclear-electronic orbital density functional theory (cNEO-DFT) as well as its gradient and Hessian. He also applied cNEO-DFT to molecular dynamics simulations and obtained excellent vibrational spectra for gas phase molecules.
At UW-Madison, Xi has 4 first-author papers and 1 second-author paper. A few more will appear in the future.
It was great working with you! Good luck and best wishes for your future, Xi!
