Dr. Luan Felipe Campos Oliveira Arrives
Kelly, Lingjie, Cody, Yunong, Krista, Sasha, Segun and Lane got back in the saddle at Pittcon 2023, held in Philadelphia between March 18-23.
Dr. Xiang Wang Arrives
Dr. Xiang Wang recently joined the bakergrp, having just graduated from Michael Mirkin’s group at CUNY. Dr. X is an expert in nanoscale electrochemistry and is enjoying the change of pace between NYC, NY and BCS, TX.
Lane named honorary fellow of AAAS
Lane is named an honorary fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. TAMU press release about this here.
Cody Leasor elected to GSAC
Cody Leasor was elected as an analytical division representative to the Graduate Student Association in Chemistry. He ran on a platform of “more chemistry less paperwork.”
New Members Join the Baker Group!
Kelly Vernon joined the Baker group this fall as the first true Aggie. She gained her bachelor’s degree in chemistry and mathematics from Shorter University, where she played collegiate soccer at the NCAA Division II level. Since joining the Baker lab, she has expressed interest in the materials side of the group and is getting […]
Benchtop SEM and Sputtercoater
If asked what we’ll be imaging the most with this instrument, the answer will be nanopipets. Our group has demonstrated a vast range of applications for nanopipets e.g., SICM and SECCM imaging, sensing, electrodeposition, local nanoliter sampling, electrospray ionization, etc. For these applications, it is important to clearly characterize nanopipet geometry including the opening radius […]
In January of 2022, after 16 great years at Indiana University, the bakergrp loaded a semi full of our gear and headed south to the Brazos Valley, relocating to Lane’s alma mater, Texas A&M University. Brian, Kristen, Sasha, Krista, Cody, Yunong and Lingjie made the trek south to Texas. Natasha and Ben stayed in Bloomington […]
Our New COMSOL Simulation Horsepower
For electrochemists doing research with scanning probe techniques, COMSOL modeling plays a significant role in instructing experiment design, estimating imaging results affected by pipette geometric, and validating electrochemical phenomena observed. Recently, Baker group has purchased a new server for more efficient COMSOL simulation. The Dell PowerEdge server is specified with 24-core AMD EYPC processor, and […]
NSF CCI Center for Single-Entity Nanochemistry and Nanocrystal Design
A consortium from Indiana University, Texas A&M, Temple and the University of Texas have recently been awarded a grant to establish the NSF Center for Chemical Imaging – the Center for Single-Entity Nanochemistry and Nanocrystal Design. The goal of this center is to address one of the biggest challenges in nanocrystal chemistry – the inherent […]
Our research group aims to train students to excel as both a scientist and a person. We realize and value the importance of diverse backgrounds and ideas in generating new scientific knowledge, and in promoting a healthy work environment. We value freedom of expression, civil discourse, and diversity in opinions, research, teaching, and life.
