Felipe Evaristo wins PMSE Best Poster Award

Posted: April 26, 2023

A distinguished group of judges from industry, academia, and government laboratories had the task of determining the winners of the Polymeric Materials Science and Engineering Division’s Best Poster Competition at the Spring American Chemical Society meeting held March 26-30 in Indianapolis. 

Felipe Fabricio Pacci Evaristo (a member of the Lisa M. Hall Group) was one of three individuals to win the honor. Winners were also recognized at the POLY/PMSE Awards Reception.

Evaristo’s poster was titled Studying Interactions between Solvated Polymer-grafted Nanoparticles via
Coarse-grained Molecular Simulations. His experience centers on the computational modeling of various types of physical systems. He currently works on projects using coarse-graining, Molecular Dynamics, Monte Carlo, and fluids Density Functional Theory to study polymeric systems, particularly polymer-grafted nanoparticles, ionomers, and block copolymers.

Evaristo got his bachelor’s degree in geophysics at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2013. He then was a visiting scholar at ETH-Zürich, Switzerland, and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for a year each. After that, he obtained his master’s degree in physics at the University of Chicago in 2017. Since then, he’s been pursuing his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering at The Ohio State University, currently as a member of the Hall group.
