|Theodore S. Dibble
|Outside of work, Ted enjoys exercise, hiking, and spending time with his family.|
|Khoa Lam (LK)
|LK is an M.S. student who joined the group in August 2016. His research applies various methods of computational chemistry to study the mechanism and kinetics of the Br-initiated oxidation of mercury in the atmosphere.|
|Before joining our Ph.D. program in January 2017, Weiyao obtained an M.S. at Syracuse University studying the interaction of aluminum with organic matter in soil. His experimental studies focus on the as-yet undetected products of of the Br-initiated oxidation of mercury in the atmosphere. He is also doing
computational modeling of electron beam chemistry.
|Xavier is an MS student doing mass spectrometry of Hg(II) compound, both in the gas phase and the solid phase (with MALDI). These approaches will be applied both to Hg(II) compounds that might be emitted from combustion and to those compounds formed in the atmosphere.|
|Taiylor is a junior who is doing computational research on combustion chemistry and atmospheric mercury chemistry. Her mercury work will focus on reactions of BrHg with organic peroxy radicals.|
|Hanna is a senior who is doing computational research on combustion chemistry and atmospheric mercury chemistry. Her work on thermodynamics of HOHg reacting with radicals is part of a manuscript being drafted (as of Fall 2018).|
|Marzy is a first year graduate student. She plans to use computational chemistry to study mercury and other environmental problems.|
