The Kovarik lab presented posters at Trinity’s annual spring research symposium in the field house.
Andres Rodriguez ’24 has been selected as a Beckman Scholar for Trinity College, making him the second Kovarik lab member to receive this honor. We went out for ice cream from Frisbee’s in Parkville Market to celebrate.
Tyler and Prof. Kovarik presented at Pittcon 2023 in Philadelphia, PA. It was great to be back at the conference and to learn about exciting work by our colleagues.
Congrats to Jonathan Mengqi Fan on his graduation! Jonathan will be continuing his chemistry studies and research in the doctoral program at Northwestern University
Results from the analytical chemistry curriculum survey that Prof. Kovarik conducted with colleagues in the ACS Analytical Division Education Committee have been published in the Journal of Chemical Education.
The Kovarik lab presented at the College’s spring research symposium and celebrated Honors Day. Congratulations to Jonathan Fan ’22 who received the Louis Aronne Biochemistry Award and the Lisa Nestor Teaching Award.
Some hard work coming to completion recently with the publication of two papers in Journal of Chemical Education and an ACS Symposium Series book.
Check out a paper describing an app for chemical equilibria and solubility created by Prof. Arianne Bazilio based on a case study I wrote, an article on assessments based on the primary literature co-authored by Prof. Rebecca Hunter at the College of New Jersey, and a new book Active Learning in the Analytical Chemistry Curriculum co-edited by Prof. Tom Wenzel (Bates College, emeritus) and Prof. Jill Robinson (Indiana University). It has great chapters on why to use active learning and how to get started, plus I am so proud of the chapter on building and design projects that I co-authored with Prof. Liz Díaz-Vázquez and Dr. Bonny Ortiz-Andrade (University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras) and Prof. Muhsinah Morris (Morehouse College).
Jonathan Mengqi Fan ’22 was the recipient of an Eastern Analytical Symposium undergraduate research award. We traveled to Princeton, NJ for the lab’s first in-person conference since Covid for him to present his work. Congratulations Jonathan!
Excited to celebrate Misha Mehra’s graduation at Trinity’s in-person Commencement.
