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. (Update: as of 2020, he still has it, and seems to be drinking more coffee too).
Avery Dalton Avery Dalton came to UCI after graduating from the University of North Florida in 2019. He is interested in all things aerosol, and the eternal fame and glory that invariably come to everyone who joins the aerosol photochemistry group.
Katherine Hopstock Katherine Hopstock is a proud member of the UCI graduating class of 2019. She is interested in chemistry of biomass burning aerosol. What could be more exciting than being able to find one million compounds in a mass spectrum?
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 finds Southern California much too warm. (Update: California is still too warm as of early 2020, and in fact, is getting warmer!)
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 impressive number of papers on very different topics according to the web of science!
Cynthia Wong Cynthia Wong graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2018. She is studying the effect of water on chemistry of organic aerosols, as well as chemical composition of second-hand vaping smoke. She is also a world-leading expert on sliding down from rainbows.

Undergraduate Students

Samantha Scott Samantha Scott is working on absorption spectra of organic aerosols and on chemistry of organic aerosols produced from real tree emissions. She is mentored by Natalie Smith.
Kimberly Zhang Kimberly Zhang is a 2020-21 UCI Beckman Scholar researching chemistry of air pollutants under joint faculty mentorship of Prof. Sergey Nizkorodov and Prof. Filipp Furche
