Chong gave an invited talk in the Department of Chemistry and Environmental Engineering, UC Riverside. It was a great exchange of exchanging ideas and forging collaborations! And Chong is grateful for the host, Prof. Ruoxue Yan!
Our dear graduate student Roselyn Rodrigues received the Excellence in Second Year Academic and Research Award from the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, UCLA. She was selected because of her outstanding contributions to the research mission of the department. The award was announced on the Department Awards Ceremony on Monday, Apr. 22nd, 2019, in the CNSI Auditorium. Congratulations, Roselyn!
The UCLA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Award aims to honor those who have motivated other members of the University to strive for excellence. Every year the Award will honor as many as four faculty members, one undergraduate, one graduate student and one staff across the UCLA campus.
Each year this honor is awarded to up to nine UCLA upper-division undergraduate students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is wonderful that Luke’s undergraduate research in the lab can be supported by the program.
Roselyn‘s project on electricity-driven microbial CO2 fixation has been accepted by Nature Catalysis. This work is a collaboration with Prof. Ellen Sletten’s group in our department. Congratulations to Roselyn and all co-authors!
On a side note, Roselyn was selected in the Naval Research Enterprise Intern Program (NREIP), sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). This summer she will spend ten weeks at Naval Research Laboratory at Washington, DC. Enjoy the summer on the east coast. 🙂
Chong gave an invited talk, hosted by Prof. Fangyuan Tian, at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, California State University, Long Beach. It was a great experience to visit the beautiful campus, meet wonderful people, and learn exciting science!
Our dear undergraduate, Luke Elissiry, is selected as the 2019 UCLA Amgen Scholar. Congratulations!
During summer 2019, UCLA will host 15 Amgen Scholars. 3 will be undergraduates from UCLA and 12 will be from other 4-year colleges and universities. Luke is one of the three undergraduates from UCLA.
