Amelia Longo receives American Chemical Society 2016 Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award

Amelia Longo, graduate student of Dr. Ellery Ingall, was awarded an American Chemical Society 2016 Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award. This award recognizes graduate students who are working in areas related to environmental chemistry. By considering course work, research productivity, as well as recommendations by faculty, this award puts primary emphasis on the student's potential for future contributions in environmental chemistry.

Amelia, using her unique background in both geochemistry and environmental engineering, developed novel synchrotron-based techniques to study the chemistry of iron, phosphorus, and sulfur in atmospheric aerosols. Her studies have yielded new insights into the impact of aerosols on ocean nutrient cycling and urban air quality.
