Vigneshwar’s last day in Buffalo

Today was another day of pride, joy, and a good dose of sadness: After being a member of the group since December 2015, Vigneshwar had his last day in Buffalo! Vigneshwar defended his MSc thesis in January 2018, wrapped up his project over the past few months, and then kept volunteering to help out the group. Tomorrow, he will head back to India for the next chapter of his career, i.e., to start work in the chemical engineering industry. During his graduate studies, Vigneshwar has been working on the modeling and discovery of biodegradable polymers and their decay reaction mechanisms.
