Jorge was selected to be part of the 2022 class of Cotrell Scholars by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) and receive $100,000 to be used towards research and teaching. The title of his proposal was “Fast and Accurate Computation of Anharmonic Phonons in Polymorphic Materials” and aims to develop methods and computational tools to compute anharmonic force constants for several materials from quantum mechanics, from which many functional properties can be predicted.
