Yitong Qi - Undergraduate of the Quarter (Fall 2018) Profile Photo

Yitong Qi has been named undergraduate of the quarter for fall term 2018, and we are so pleased.

Yitong grew up in Xi’an, the capital city of the Saanxi Province in China. He then moved to Salem where he attended Sprague High School.

An initial interest in sustainable energy and materials drove Yitong to pursue Chemical Engineering in his undergraduate work. He discovered that engineering was less about the materials than the process, and decided to switch to Chemistry to work first hand with the chemicals. He found research interest after joining Dr. Ji’s lab, where he works with graduate students and post docs on projects related to battery materials. Projects in the lab involve making and applying carbon materials to battery use and the chemistry behind them.

In his spare time, Yitong enjoys watching movies, hearing stories, and eating guacamole.

After graduating from Oregon State University, Yitong plans to attend graduate school.

Students like Yitong are just some of the reasons were so proud of our Undergraduate Majors.  We wish him great success in his future endeavors.

Angela Hoffman and I would like to officially invite your students who have done Chemistry research approximately during the last calendar year to submit an abstract to present either a poster or a ~15 minute oral presentation at the 2020 Oregon Academy of Science (OAS) conference, happening on the morning/afternoon of Saturday, February 29, 2020, at Portland State University.

Please circulate this call for abstracts to your department members who may have interested students.

Complete details regarding abstract submission are found in the attached word document “OAS2020Registration” and abstracts should be mailed to both Angela and I. Please send abstracts to both hoffman@up.edu and abaggett@linfield.edu.

Complete details regarding registration are in the same attached document.

Information about recent past OAS meetings and this current meeting (including a link to parking information for PSU) can be found on our website, http://oregonacademyscience.org

Please submit abstracts by the deadline of February 14, 2020 to ensure a place in the schedule and to appear in the printed edition of the 2020 OAS Proceedings.

Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing about the excellent Chemistry research being done by students at your institution!

I am writing to ask for your help in identifying early career scientists and mathematicians to participate in the NextProf Science 2020 workshop being offered at the University of Michigan on May 4-7, 2020 (see attached pdf). NextProf Science is aimed at future faculty—advanced doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows who are interested in an academic career in science at an exceptional academic research institution and who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity. 


The U-M College of Literature, Science, and Arts natural science departments will bring up to 50 future faculty participants to the U-M campus to show them the rewards of an academic career, help them understand the faculty search process, and connect them with faculty in their research area, as well as academic leaders, and other participants. The NextProf Science  workshop is free to participants, who must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Participants’ expenses for travel, lodging, and meals will be covered.

Find the online application and additional information about the on the NextProf Science website at:sites.lsa.umich.edu/nextprof-science/


The deadline to receive all applications and reference letters is: January 19, 2020. Please distribute this information to qualified individuals you would like to encourage to apply to the NextProf workshop. Also please forward this message to faculty colleagues who might know of potential applicants.


If you have general questions about the program or application process, please contact um-nextprof-science@umich.edu. For questions specific to the chemistry-focused activities, please contact me directly at jmontg@umich.edu.

Sincerely,

John Montgomery
