Nenes Group researchers win awards


Kalliopi Violaki, a postdoctoral scholar in the Nenes Group, was awarded an EU Marie Curie Fellowship. These are highly competitive and prestigious grants, awarded to researchers in the EU for carrying out high-impact research. Violaki’s research will focus on studying the cycle of phosphorous in the atmosphere and oceans, and the role of atmospheric deposition of the element on oceanic productivity and carbon uptake.



Sylvia Sullivan, a PhD student in the Nenes Group, is currently visiting the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany on a six-month stipend provided by KIT. She is working with the groups of Professors Corinna Hoose and Thomas Leisner to study secondary ice formation in mixed-phase clouds. KIT is one of the world leaders in studying clouds and their interactions with aerosols, and the Nenes Group has hosted visitors from KIT a number of times in the past.
