Student presents research in Barcelona, Spain.
Kate Rodriguez ('13), a chemistry major and physics minor, recently presented her work on nanoparticle coatings at the Molecular Materials 2012 conference (MolMat) in Barcelona, Spain. She traveled with her research advisor, Dr. Rosalynn Quiñones. Kate’s work is on the surface functionalization of zinc oxide nanoparticles via the attachment of organic acid self-assembled monolayers. Her presentation results from over a year of work with Dr. Quiñones and Dr. Robbie Iuliucci, both of the chemistry department. Kate's research is supported through funding from the National Science Foundation with additional travel support provided by W&J's president, Dr. Tori Haring-Smith.
