We continue to support and actively contribute to the Open Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models (OpenKIM) community. OpenKIM is a cyberinfrastructure for improving the reliability of molecular and multiscale simulations of materials. It includes a repository of interatomic potentials that are exhaustively tested, tools to help select among existing potentials and develop new ones, and standard integration methods for using potentials in major simulation codes. Visit the OpenKIM website (https://openkim.org).


The Admal Research Group actively engages in outreach targeted towards K-12 students. Our outreach activities so far include:

  • Girls Building Awesome Machines (G-BAM) at UIUC – Summer, 2019
  • Virtual Summer Camp – Summer, 2020
