Kennesaw State University is one of the 50 largest public universities in the country. Located just north of Atlanta, Ga., the University combines a suburban setting on two campuses in Kennesaw and Marietta, with access to one of the country’s most dyn...
Awards & Recognition
Students in Kennesaw State's College of Computing and Software Engineering recently demonstrated their talent, creativity and ability to put what they've learned in the classroom into practice during the biannual Computing Showcase, also called C-Day. The culminating event, presented at the end of the fall semester, attracted dozens of student projects which were then judged by 18 industry professionals in five categories. Graduating students displayed their posters, video games and prototypes that highlighted their experiences within internships, team projects, research endeavors, and capstone and thesis work. More than 40 undergraduate and graduate students were honored with first, second and third place honors in five categories.

Graduate StudentAugust 2016 - PresentThis is my second step in the dream of a pursuit of a Ph.D and the acquisition of skills needed to pursue my life's goal of understanding the CO2 molecule at the quantum level. My emphasis for research at Kennesaw State will be understand how computational surface modelling tools are created and employed in a distributed or parallel computing environment and then develop a first principle tool for modelling CO2. A masters may not be sufficient scale to develop such a tool but a Ph. D. probably is. Once it is developed, this tool will be then used to aid in my understanding how the CO2 molecule acts in different conditions (magnetic, photon bombardment, electrical potential, state change, temperature and proximity to other molecules) at a very small timescale and attempt to describe a model for CO2 interactions based on first principles. Is this feasible? I have a lot of reading to do to make ensure I'm not chasing something already achieved or rejected. I believe it is the case that it has not been attempted and can be achieved based on the research at University of Wisconsin-Madison where the computational materials group employed computational modeling first principles to identify nanoparticles designs that substitute for platinum in catalysts. I am looking (along with thousands of other researchers chasing the same goal I realize) for an efficient process to lyse CO2 without using biological processes, catalysts, high temperatures or other exotic laboratory conditions.
