Welcome to the Aerosol Photochemistry Group.
We are located on the beautiful campus of the University
of California, Irvine in the Department
of Chemistry. We investigate chemical composition, photochemistry, and physical properties of organic aerosols using aerosol chamber techniques, cavity ring-down
spectroscopy, chemical ionization mass spectrometry, ultrahigh-resolution mass spectrometry, chromatography, tandem differential mobility techniques, and other state-of-the-art techniques. Please refer to our research section for more details.
Aeronews: Tim Cai receives the 2017 ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry Undergraduate Award! Tim is graduating from UCI this month and will be starting graduate school at Carnegie Melon University. Congratulations Tim! Former lab members, Stephanie Kim and Claire Engelmann and also graduating this month! Congratulations Stephanie and Claire! At the graduation ceremony, Paige Aiona and Mallory Hinks are "hooded" signifying their success in completing the graduate program at UCI. Congratulations Paige and Mallory!
Graduate & Postdoctoral Research: If you are interested in conducting graduate research in our group please contact Prof. Nizkorodov. The group currently has five PhD students: Paige Aiona, Lauren Fleming, Mallory Hinks, Kurtis Malecha, and Julia Montoya. Please refer to the publication section for examples of recent papers by the group members. The group's graduate students have been recognized by multiple awards and fellowships from the department and from the outside sources. Former group members have been successful in securing employment in policy, education, industrial research and academic research sectors. Go Aerosolates!
Undergraduate Research: Undergraduate students are welcome to do their undergraduate research
projects in Aerosol
Photochemistry Group on a space available basis. If you are interested in such an opportunity
please review the requirements and then contact Prof. Nizkorodov in advance.
The usual mechanism is enrollment in either
Chem 180, H180, or 199; summer internships may be possible as well.
