  • On Friday December 6th, we participated in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry’s Graduate Student Organization (GSO) monthly Science Café. The Science Cafes are informal poster sessions that are held on the first Friday of every month during the Fall and Spring semesters in the Chemistry glass lounge (2nd floor in the chemistry building). The aim is to highlight the research of groups in Chemistry and the research of collaborators from other departments (Chemical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Physics, Materials Science, Atmospheric Sciences, etc). Members from the group (left to right. Patricia, Qi, Rahaf) were in attendance and presented our recent collaborative research about Black Carbon and Martian Dust.
