Greg Wentworth from Dr. Al-Abadleh's lab invited to attend the 2010 Rising Stars of Research-National Undergraduate Research Poster Competition
Congratulations to Gregory Wentworth (4th year HBSc-Chemistry) for being invited to attend the 2010 Rising Stars of Research-National Undergraduate Research Poster Competition at UBC. Greg is a NSERC-USRA recipient who spent summer working with Dr. Al-Abadleh studying the kinetics of photochemical transformation of models for humic-like substances in atmospheric aerosols using infrared spectroscopy, and quantifying water uptake on organic molecules using quartz crystal microbalance. This experimental work is being complemented with computational chemisry projects in collaboration with Dr. Hamilton.
