# Graduate Students

I am currently looking for a new graduate student.

# Undergraduate Students

- Elliott Capek
- Elliott is studying the dynein motor protein. He is currently working on Brownian dynamics simulations of a two-dimensional model of the dynein motor protein.

# Alums

- Brenden Vischer
- B.S. 2016
*The free energy of a liquid*- Brenden studied the free energy of the square well fluid using Monte Carlo simulations.
- Ryan Scheirer
- M.S. 2016
*Exploring Phase Equilibrium with Statistical non-Associating Fluid Theory: A Generalized Renormalization Group Theory Approach*- Billy Geerhart III
- M.S. 2016
*Finding the arbitrary parameter $L$ in Renormalization Group Theory via fitting Monte Carlo simulations to Statistical Associating Fluid Theory*- Eric Krebs
- Ph.D. 2015
*Theory of inhomogeneous fluids*- Eric began at Oregon State in the fall of 2010, and began by working on a classical density functional for water. He improved our functional for water to benefit from Jeff's work on the hard-sphere distribution function at contact. He also worked on developing a functional based on Soft Fundamental Measure Theory for not-quite-hard spheres.
- Austin Valeske
- B.S. 2015
*Determining free energies of hard sphere fluids via Monte Carlo simulation*- Patrick Kreitzberg
- B.S. 2015
*Monte Carlo simulations for a soft sphere fluid*- Michael Perlin
- B.S. 2015
*Optimizing Monte Carlo simulation of the square-well fluid*- Josh Montegna
- B.S. 2015
*Determining the effective entropy of a visual hash system*- Jeff Schulte
- Ph.D. 2015
*Hard spheres within classical density functional theory and Min proteins within Escherichia Coli*- Jeff has studied the inhomogeneous hard sphere fluid, and developed a functional describing the likelihood of finding spheres in contact as a function of position. He then developed a simulation of min-D oscillations in bacteria, and a theory for the pair distribution function of the inhomogeneous hard-sphere fluid.
- Daniel Roth
- M.S. 2014
*Applying Renormalization Group Theory to the Square Well Liquid*- Paho Lurie-Gregg
- B.S. 2014
*The contact value approximation to the pair distribution function for an inhomogeneous hard sphere fluid*- Paho also worked on Monte Carlo simulations of hard-polyhedron fluids.
- Rene Zeto
- B.S. 2014
*Testing the model for Min D protein oscillations in Escherichia coli*- Denny Jackson
- Ph.D. 2011
*An Ising-like model to predict the dielectric properties of the relaxor ferroelectric solid solution $\text{BaTiO}_3\text{-Bi(Zn}_{\frac12}\text{Ti}_{\frac{1}{2}})\text{O}_3$*- Chris Haglund
- Switched majors to Earth Science
- Chris joined us in his sophomore year, and from 2011 to 2012 wrote our first Monte Carlo code to simulate the hard sphere fluid and find the probability of contact.
- Murray Wade
- B.S. 2012
*Creating a Thermodynamics Simulation Using the Ising Model: A Microcanonical Monte Carlo Approach*- Jessica Hughes

- B.S. 2010
*Measuring the Acoustic Response Function with White Noise*- Jason Dagit
- Computer Science M.S. 2009
*Type Correct Changesâ€”A Safe Approach to Version Control Implementation*- Jason got a Masters degree in Computer Science, working on the patch theory of darcs and ensuring its proper use via type witnesses.
