About Me

My name is Cody Drisko, and I’m a graduate student in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame. My research focuses on studying ionic conductivity through reverse non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (RNEMD) simulations. Potential applications of our work include the modeling of biological membranes, thermoelectrics, and more. I began my work under J. Daniel Gezelter (Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry) in the summer of 2018. Previously, I got my Bachelors degree in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA. My research there consisted primarily of organic synthesis work with a short computational study in tandem with my organic project.
