A New Cohort of Students!

January, 2022

A warm welcome to Eddie Louz and Tasneem Ibrahim to ICompute. Eddie will study the effect of aggregation on the acidity of carboxylic with the guidance of Prof. Mark Kobrak. Tasneem is studying the properties of eumelanin under the mentorship of Prof. Laura Juszczak.


The Interdisciplinary Computation & Modeling research Program for Undergraduate students (ICoMPUte) seeks to promote molecular modeling as a research tool in Chemistry and related fields. The program normally lasts two semesters, during which students work in interdisciplinary teams on projects involving wet lab experiments as well as molecular simulations, computer code development, and chemical physics theory & models.

The program is managed by the Department of Chemistry at Brooklyn College. A small stipend is provided to qualified students. The program is supported by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation.

Chemistry students who are currently engaged or are pursuing research projects in experimental laboratories are particularly encouraged to apply. Students in other laboratory sciences: Biology, Psychology, and Physics, as well as Math, Computer Science, and Engineering are also encouraged to apply. Students interested in chemistry laboratory work are expected to have completed Organic Chemistry II laboratory. Applications from CUNY students not at Brooklyn College are also accepted.

For further questions and eligibility criteria please contact Prof. Emilio Gallicchio, egallicchio@brooklyn.cuny.edu.
