Graduate Students

Vahe Baboomian Vahe Baboomian obtained his B.S. degree in physical chemistry from UCI in 2017. He is investigating effects of solar radiation on different types of organic aerosols to better understand how aerosols age in the atmosphere. MEanwhile, his group members are investigating how long it will take before Vahe throws his manual coffee grinder away.
Lauren Fleming Lauren Fleming graduated from the College of Wooster in 2014. Her honors thesis focused on aqueous photochemistry. In our group, she is investigating photochemistry of biomass burning aerosols in controlled environments and in the field, using mass spectrometry and UV-Vis absorption techniques. She also is a part of the Rowland- Blake group where she analyzes the gaseous products of biomass burning. View Lauren's curriculum vitae.
Alexandra Klodt Alexandra Klodt came to UCI in the fall of 2017 and joined out group to investigate chemistry of organic compounds occurring in aerosol liquid water. She is a graduate of Iowa State University, and so far finds Southern California much too warm. ( Update: California is still too warm as of early 2019.)
Julia Montoya-Aguilera Julia Montoya-Aguilera joined the UCI chemistry graduate program in the summer of 2015 after graduating from Cal State LA, where she did research on production of singlet oxygen from PAH compounds. She joined our group in February 2016. She is investigating the effect of ammonia on the composition and properties of secondary organic aerosols using mass spectrometry and other methods. View Julia's curriculum vitae.
Natalie Smith Natalie Smith obtained her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Appalachian State University in 2017. At UCI, she is investigating chemistry occurring in highly viscous aerosol particles. She already has authored a very large number of papers on different topics according to the web of science!
Natalie Smith Cynthia Wong graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2018. She will be studying various aspects of chemistry of organic aerosols.
