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, mass spectrometry, and other state-of-the-art techniques. Please refer to our research section for more details (note that this section is less up to date than the publication section).
Aeronews: Our group members shine during graduation ceremonies! Cynthia Wong receives the Jackie Smitrovich Prize for her department service. Luia Liu and Avery Dalton both receive Teaching Awards for their contributions to the chemistry department teaching program. Jett Vuong is recognized with the Outstanding Senior Award for his academic success and with the ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry Undergraduate Award for his research work. Maggie Chou receives the Michael E. Gebel Undergraduate Award for her research work. Congratulations everyone!
Graduate Research: If you are interested in conducting graduate research in our group please contact Prof. Nizkorodov. We typically try to have 1-2 new graduate students join our group each year. 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. We typically have 3-5 students at any given time (depending on whether a graduate student mentor is available). 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. We cannot take high school interns.
