First month at SLU

Settling down at SLU is quite busy time. I am teaching CHEM 333 - Physical Chemistry I (Thermodynamics) and building a basic electrochemistry laboratory. Ph. D. student Mahesh Wickramasinghe has joined my research group; he will work on nonlinear dynamics of electrochemical systems. Enida Haxhia (undergraduate student) is interested in learning about biological rhythms and I meet Scott Martin and Neil Munjal regularly about possible application of microfluid devices in electrochemistry. Our paper with Isao Tokuda from Japan has been published in PRL and finally our joint work on synchrony analysis in epilepsy with University of Virginia has been accepted in Biophysical Journal.
