Paul Calio received his B.S. in chemistry from Bradley University in 2015. While at Bradley he used fluorescence correlation spectroscopy to characterize the binding of fluorescent dyes to fumed silica. During the summer of 2014, Paul was a NSF-REU awardee at the University of Kansas where he joined the Thompson group. At the University of Kansas he used classical molecular dynamics to study the resorcinarene supramolecular assembly. Currently, Paul is a graduate student in the Voth group where he uses reactive molecular dynamics to study proton transport in alternative energy materials.
