Cora was in lovely Boulder, CO last week for the first meeting of the Chemistry of Indoor Environments program. She presented the group’s research on reactive chlorine indoors, including Kathryn’s HCl measurements.
Welcome to new graduate and undergraduate students in the group! Jessica Clouthier joins as a PhD student, Daniel and Andrea join as MSc students, and Lisa joins as a CHEM 4000 student. Great to have all of you in the group!
Cora visited Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh this week to give a seminar in the Department of Chemistry, as well as visited with colleagues in the Department of Chemistry and Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies. She spoke about long-range transport of perfluoroalkyl substances.
Cora was at the ACS meeting last week in Boston. She presented in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Environmental Sciences Early Career Researcher Symposium, where she showed research from Heidi and Joseph.
Former group member Bryan Place had the second paper from his MSc published recently! Bryan showed the applicability of passive sampling of nitric acid to remote boreal forest locations. This work was done in collaboration with his co-supervisor Trevor VandenBoer, as well as the research group of Sue Ziegler and collaborators at the Canadian Forestry Service. The paper is published in Atmospheric Environment. Congratulations!
Cora was in historic (hot, and humid) Philadelphia last week at the 2018 Indoor Air meeting. She presented work from Kathryn and Teles looking at reactive chlorine chemistry indoors. Collaborators Tara Kahan and Shan Zhao presented results from studies of indoor oxidants.
Kathryn's presentation at the CSC meeting last month was awarded a Graduate Student Poster Prize by the Environment Division. Congratulations!
Cora, Kathryn, and Devon travelled to Edmonton to attend the CSC meeting this week. Cora presented work from Teles, Andrea, and Joseph, while Kathryn and Devon represented with excellent presentations!
Heidi officially received her MSc degree this week. Congratulations!
