carol-hallDr. Carol Hall is the recipient of the 2015 Foundations of Molecular Modeling and Simulation (FOMMS) Medal.

FOMMS, an international conference held every three years, showcases the applications and theory of quantum chemistry, molecular science, and engineering computational simulation. The simulations are typically used to predict properties of new materials, and to gain fundamental molecular-level understanding of chemical processes.

Dr. Hall is being recognized for her contributions to the field of molecular theory, modeling and simulation. She has been a leader in several associated research areas, including phase separation in colloidal suspensions, and equations of state for alkanes and polymers. She is also at the forefront of simulations-based research efforts to understand the aggregation of proteins in Alzheimer's disease.

Among many other honors and awards, Dr. Hall is the the Camille Dreyfus Distinguished University Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Congratulations Dr. Hall!
