Students in our lab did an outstanding job at the virtual American Chemical Society Rocky Mountain Regional meeting! Sam, Fionna and Chris all presented their work virtually in individual 6-minute talks. Their presentations were so well received that each of them won an award! Sam was awarded the ACS Award for her presentation on glucose-water …
After successful submission of her abstract to the CRYO2020 conference, Fionna was invited to present her research as a Peter L. Steponkus Crystal Award finalist. Although she did not win the award, she was able to give a wonderful 15 minute talk (https://youtu.be/dsCymAuGfGA) next to four of her peers. “It was a great experience!” says …
Sam and Fionna participated in the 2019 Graduate Student Showcase, presenting their current research to their peers, faculty, and the public. Having impressed the judges with their pitches, both Sam and Fionna were invited to compete with 40+ other graduate students to become Vice President of Research (VPR) fellows. The challenge: condense their research into …
Sam Miller and Fionna Samuels are now PhD candidates. To pass orals, Sam presented her research on nano-confined water and glucose mixtures in AOT reverse micelles. She studies these systems primarily with NMR techniques. Fionna presented her research on cryoprotectants interacting with plant cells. Congrats!
Ke’Lani recently presented her research for the public. Her REU research focused on determining how different cryoprotectants interact with each other. She did this using NMR.
Sam Miller passed her candidacy exam today and is now officially a doctoral candidate! Congratulations on a stellar presentation! She will continue her work in understanding the fundamental nature of nano-confined water using NMR to investigate reverse micelles.
Sam will be travelling to South Carolina in March to participate in Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference (PANIC) with her poster titled ‘Developing a Direct NMR Method to Measure Chemical Exchange in Aqueous Systems’. Read her abstract here, hers is poster #32!
Cyrus’s abstract for the abstract the 2019 Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in STEM was accepted for presentation. He will be traveling to the ERN Conference in Washington, DC in January 2019.
As part of the Ohio State University Frontiers in Chemical Physics series, Nancy gave three presentations about Levinger group research, April 4, 5, and 6, 2018.
