Sijie Fu

Sijie is a grad student in Chemistry, who does not go to the gym and sleeps a lot. Instead of doing things himself, he forces computers. You may find his computers trying to accelerate materials discoveries when he is asleep. He loves Ping Pong & badminton, and is looking for buddies (not computers)!


master students

Anchit Singhal

Anchit is a MS student in the Department of Chemical Engineering at CMU. He is working on the development of Molecular Transformers. He completed his B.Tech. at IIT, Dhanbad, India. He wishes to learn further in the field of catalysis and machine learning and hopes that his research can contribute to society. In his free time, he likes reading novels.

Parth Patel

Parth is an M.S student at the Department of Chemical Engineering. He has done his Btech in Chemical Engineering from ICT Mumbai. His interests primarily lie in Bayesian optimization and computational experimentation. He also loves to travel and explore.


Daniil Boiko

Daniil is currently a student at Lomonosov Moscow State University and is particularly interested in machine learning for catalyst and reaction discovery. He likes good code and sometimes pays too much attention to details.

Letícia Madureira

I'm Leticia Madureira, from Santa Catarina, Brazil. I'm a undergraduate student in Chemistry at UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina) and an undergraduate student in Computer Sciences at UNIFRAN (University of Franca). Since I was 7, being a scientist was my dream, assuming an eternal compromise with my studies. My hobbies are: read about politics and watch comedy series.
