Paul Ziemann Joins Department Faculty
The department of Chemistry and Biochemistry would like to welcome Dr. Paul Ziemann!
Dr. Paul Ziemann received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Connecticut, an M.S. in Chemical Oceanography from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Penn State, where he studied the formation and properties of metal oxide clusters with Professor Will Castleman. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Particle Technology Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he developed methods for the sampling and analysis of aerosol particles with Professor Peter McMurry. In 1996 he joined the faculty in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Riverside, where he rose to the rank of Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and served as the Director of the Air Pollution Research Center. In the summer of 2013 he moved to the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and a Fellow in the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences.
The Ziemann group is interested in experimental and modeling studies of the chemical and physical processes involved in the formation of atmospheric organic aerosol particles.
