Dr. Feller continues to collaborate with Wabash undergraduates in his scholarly work in the study of biological membranes.
The Wabash computing lab is made available to students through internships, independent study classes, and
special topics courses. A full list of students doing major work in the lab can be found on the
CV page in the undergraduate students section.
Students use the Spartan family of molecular modeling programs for classroom learning. These programs are used across the chemistry curriculum,
beginning with first-semester introductory chemistry and culminating with senior comprehensive exams.
With training from systems administrator Matt Roark, students work with professor Feller
to design and run simulations. They learn analysis methods and adapt them to their simulation and often present findings at the Celebration of Student Research,
Scholarship, and Creative Work held annually on campus.
Dr. Feller has shared some of the lab's accelerated computing capabilities with select Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science courses.
Recently, the computing lab has made connections across campus to computational physicist Danielle McDermott and several physics students
who will be investigating condensed matter systems through Molecular Dynamics. Students picked problems to explore and developed their own code.
