Mardochee Reveil wins "First Year Graduate Student of the Year" award
Mardochee Reveil was presented with the "First Year Graduate Student of the Year" award by the Cornell office of Diversity Programs in Engineering on Friday, May 8th, for his outstanding progress in research.
Mardochee joined the Clancy group in November 2014 following his MS degree from Syracuse University. In just his first six months as a PhD student, he has successfully extended a software suite called CLASP (Cornell Laser Annealing Simulation Package) to include non-traditional materials like InGaAs, which is a candidate to replace silicon in future semiconductor devices. The Clancy group's CLASP suite is used by a number of semiconductor industries such as GlobalFoundries and Novellus.
Mardochee was also selected from a very competitive pool to be a participant in a CECAM workshop on multiscale modeling at the Les Houches School of Computational Physics taking place from May 11-22 2015 in France.
