Diversity at the University

An Inclusive Community

The University of Rochester envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s missions of teaching, research, patient care, performance, and community service. In a pluralistic culture, that community includes faculty, students, and staff who represent important differences. Read More

University Recognized for Number of Fulbright Students

Rochester has been named to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs list of U.S. colleges and universities that produced the most 2016–17 Fulbright U.S. students. The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. Top-producing institutions are highlighted annually in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Eleven Rochester students won Fulbright awards for 2016–17. Visit the Student Fellowships website for more information about Fulbright awards and other student scholarships, fellowships, and awards.

Pengfei (Frank) Huo
Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Pengfei (Frank) Huo joins the tenure-track faculty at the University after serving as a visiting assistant professor of chemistry at Rochester for the past year. Frank’s PhD work focused on developing efficient and accurate theoretical methods to better understand energy transfer processes in the natural light harvesting systems that perform photosynthesis.

In 2012, he was appointed a postdoctoral researcher at the California Institute of Technology, where he simulated the dynamics of electron and proton transfer mechanisms in catalysts that are used to produce fuels from sunlight. He was recognized as one of the top reviewers for the Journal of Chemical Physics (2012) and received an ACS PHYS Division Postdoctoral Research Award (2014).

At Rochester, Huo will lead a group to investigate the complex chemical and molecular dynamics associated with harvesting and storing solar energy. The group’s primary interests include the charge transfer dynamics in organic photovoltaic devices; the coupled transfer of electrons and protons in photo-catalytic systems; and research to active small molecules as a more efficient source for solar energy storage. #URDiversity #FabFacultyFridays
