My research at Manhattan College centers around trying to understand the behavior of organic molecules that have lots of triple bonds. These compounds have very practical uses: (1) they can be polymerized to strengthen materials, (2) when they exist in rings, they have powerful anti-cancer activity! How do they do what they do?
If you like math and physics and chemistry AND computers, maybe you'd like to be a part of my research group at Manhattan College. We are equipped with PC's (running Windows and LINUX), RS-6000 workstations, and I have access to a BIG Silicon Graphics Power Series. Sometimes, we need time on the Cray at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
