Pillar receives 2016 UK Woman's Club Fellowship

UK Chemistry graduate student Elizabeth Pillar has been selected as a recipient of the 2016 University of Kentucky Woman’s Club Fellowship. This fellowship provides $2000 from the University of Kentucky Woman’s Club and recognizes both current achievements as a doctoral student as well as future potential. Pillar is a graduate student in the Guzman group at UK. Her publications focus on reactions to better understand atmospheric chemistry, including the oxidation of cathechol at the air/water interface and reactions of iodide in microdroplets exposed to ozone.
