Our Story

Markus Chmielus, PhD began working at the University of Pittsburgh in 2013. Jakub joined the group as the first graduate student, then Amir and Erica. Katerina and Aaron are our most recent addition, and Amir graduated with his PhD. Many undergraduates have worked in the group as well, contributing in invaluable ways!
