Pavan Ravindra has received a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. Ravindra, a PhD candidate in the Chemistry Department working with David Reichman, studies the glass transition using computer simulations and plans to explore quantum systems at some point during his PhD. His primary goal is to use a method called dynamic mode decomposition to study how a supercooled liquid changes with temperature. 

Prior to joining Columbia last year, Ravindra completed his Master's at Cambridge University, where he used computational methods to study phase transitions of nano-confined water. He has a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Biochemisry from the University of Maryland.

Ravindra will complete his fellowship practicum next summer at a Department of Energy laboratory.
