Alexis Eugene wins NASA Graduate Fellowship

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 15, 2016) Alexis Eugene, a University of Kentucky doctoral student in the Department of Chemistry, has been awarded the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship.

Guzman’s Group article becomes the most read paper of the Journal of Physical Chemistry A

The Journal of Physical Chemistry A recognized an article by University of Kentucky Chemistry Professor Marcelo Guzman as the most read article for the last 12 months.

Pillar receives 2016 UK Woman's Club Fellowship

This fellowship recognizes both current achievements as a doctoral student as well as future potential. 

Pillar, Zhou, and Guzman publish "Heterogeneous Oxidation of Catechol" in J. Phys. Chem. A.

The results of this study show that carboxylic acids and polyhydroxylated biphenyls and terphenyls products can be generated from organic species emitted during combustion processes. The implication of this finding is that heterogeneous reactions provide a channel for the generation of secondary oxidants during atmospheric processes. J. Phys. Chem. A, 2015, 119 (41), 10349–10359.

NSF Awards $6 Million to UK and Three Partner Schools to Develop Weather Research Drones

A $6 million National Science Foundation grant will allow researchers at the University of Kentucky, Oklahoma State University, University of Oklahoma, and University of Nebraska to develop unmanned aircraft systems, otherwise known as drone systems, to study atmospheric physics for improved precision agriculture and weather forecasting.

National Award, Global Implications: Alexis Eugene

Faculty members in the Department of Chemistry characterize Alexis Eugene as an outstanding student, critical thinker and driven researcher. Her accomplishments were recently recognized at the national level as she received the Graduate Student Award from the Environmental Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society.

UK Chemistry Professor, Students' Research Published in National Journal

Environmental Science and Technology, a journal of the American Chemical Society, recently published research by chemistry Assistant Professor Marcelo Guzman, graduate student Elizabeth Pillar and senior Robert Camm.

Rarefied Air: Liz Pillar

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is a nonprofit organization of geophysicists with over 62,000 members from 144 countries. At their most recent meeting last December, 24,000 people presented and discussed the newest interdisciplinary and international research in geophysics, which makes Liz Pillar’s accomplishments all the more impressive.

Guzman Receives NSF Career Award for Environmental Chemistry
