The 104th Distinguished Research Lectureship was awarded to Dr. Veronica Bierbaum, professor for the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Bierbaum is also a member of the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics (JILA) and the Center for Astrophysics & Space Astronomy (CASA).
She will give a lecture on August 30, 2012 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m., in Chem 140, followed by a reception. The event is free and open to the public.
The Distinguished Research Lectureship is among the highest honors bestowed by the faculty upon a faculty member at CU-Boulder. Each year, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research requests nominations from faculty for this award, and a faculty review panel recommends one faculty member as a recipient. The lectureship honors a tenured faculty member widely recognized for a distinguished body of academic or creative achievement and prominence, as well as contributions to the educational and service missions of CU-Boulder.
Dr. Bierbaum's research focuses on the development of new techniques in physical and organic chemistry and their application to studies of gas phase ion chemistry. These studies probe the kinetics, dynamics and thermochemistry of a wide variety of gas phase ion-molecule reactions which have fundamental importance as well as relevance to atmospheric and interstellar chemistry.
