Catalysis Kinetic Monte Carlo Package "Zacros" Released by Dr Stamatakis's Group

Publication date:

Predicting the performance of catalytic materials is a major challenge in the design of catalysts for bespoke applications. The kinetic Monte Carlo package "Zacros" just released by the Dr Michail Stamatakis's research group enables the accurate simulation of complex molecular mechanisms on catalytic surfaces. It can incorporate reaction rate and energetics data from ab initio calculations, making it a powerful first-principles framework for understanding catalytic phenomena. The software is available free-of-charge to academics from: http://www.e-lucid.com/i/software/material_modelling/Zacros.html

Chemical Engineering Cocktail Party 2013

This year’s chemical engineering cocktail party held for the second time by UCL’s Chemical Engineering Ramsay Society turned out to be quite literally an ice-breaking event. With a turnout of almost 350 people the night was the biggest one held so far by Ramsay Society and a huge success! With the majority of attendees from the chemical engineering department itself, this year’s cocktail party extended also to including the Biochemical Crooks Society, the Green Economy Society and even some people from different universities.

Dr Stamatakis recognized as a Top Reviewer of CACE

Publication date:

Dr Michail Stamatakis was recently named as a Top Reviewer for Computers & Chemical Engineering (CACE) in 2012-2013. CACE, published by Elsevier on a monthly basis, is a major Chemical Engineering journal covering, among others, the areas of Modelling, Numerical Analysis, Simulation and Process Systems Engineering. Dr Stamatakis has been an author and reviewer for the journal since 2011; his most recent paper on CACE presents hybrid models of cell population heterogeneity and appeared earlier this year. The journal Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Rafiqul Gani, and Publisher, Dr Angela Welch, appreciated Dr Stamatakis’s role as a reviewer with the following citation: “in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the quality of the journal”.
