About the Group
Our group endeavors to understand heterogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis at an atomic level through the use of kinetic, isotopic, and spectroscopic studies combined with state-of-the-art density functional theory calculations in order to improve conversions of fossil- and biomass-derived feedstocks into fuels and chemicals.
Furthermore, the group has developed programs for simple setup and automation of DFT calculations and a web-interface for visualizing their results, permitting high throughput studies (without scaling relationships) and rapid verification of calculation results.

Hibbitts Research Group Rapidly Growing
We now have 12 members, Ph.D. students Paul Kravchenko & Steven Nystrom, M.S. students Abdul Almithn, Aamish Asai, Mohit Gupta, & Rohit Joshi, and undergrad Adam Bachmann all joined the Hibbitts Research Group fall ('15), and M.S. students Varun Krishnan & Diksha Tulsi and undergrads Jake Lane, Joshua Rubin & Kathleen Dreyer joined spring ('16).
