• Shaghui Huang: Dr. Shanghui Huang is a postdoctoral research associate working on a data analytical platform for compact X-ray free-electron lasers (CXFEL). Shanghui received his Ph.D. in computational chemistry from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in 2023. His former research was about exploring colloidal self-assemblies with enhanced sampling methods of molecular simulations. It included studies on thermodynamic properties and assembly behavior of colloidal clusters with short-ranged interactions, as well as developing novel methods to identify reaction coordinates and calculate free energy profiles.
