A Neural Network Approach for Structural Characterization of Metal Nanoparticles and Clusters

Anatoly Frenkel is a Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at the Stony Brook University and a Senior Chemist (Joint Appointment) at the Division of Chemistry, Brookhaven National Laboratory, having joined in the Fall of 2016. Prior to his appointment at SBU, he has held a number of different positions, including Associate and then appointed Full Professor and Chair, Physics Department at Yeshiva University, a Research Scientist and Principal Investigator in Materials Research Laboratory of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received M.Sc. degree from St. Petersburg University and Ph. D. degree from Tel Aviv University (with Prof. A. V. Voronel), all in Physics, followed by a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Washington (with Prof. E. A. Stern). His research interests focus on development and applications of in situ and operando synchrotron methods to solve a wide range of materials problems, with most recent emphasis on catalysis, electromechanical materials, filtration materials, quantum dots, physico-chemical properties of nanoparticles, as well as machine learning methods for structural analysis and design of nanomaterials. He is a founding Principal Investigator and the Spokesperson for the Synchrotron Catalysis Consortium at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the Empire Innovation Program at the New York State. He is the author of over 300 peer-reviewed publications, which have been cited > 14,000 times, and has given over 250 invited lectures at conferences and university, government and corporate laboratories.
