2018 NSF CHE CAREER Workshop

Alex attended the 2018 NSF Chemistry Early Career Investigator Workshop that was held March 26–27, 2018 in Alexandria, VA and brought together 100 junior faculty. It was really great to catch up with the old friends and meet new!

Dudnik group participates in COSMOS 2017 @ UC Davis

Alex has recently served as a Cluster 8 instructor for The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS). COSMOS is a 4-week educational summer program for high achieving 8th-12th grade high school students. This intense academic program is intended to inspire and encourage young people to pursue future study in a STEM related field. More details and pictures from COSMOS 2017 are here. The other two instructors in the Cluster 8 were Profs. Mark Mascal and Jesús Velázquez. It was really fun and we are eagerly waiting for COSMOS 2018!
