Kelly Hall

Kelly Hall, a chemistry undergraduate student in the research group of Dr. Anselm Omoike, was the winner of an FACSS Student Poster Award at the SciX 2014 Conference in Reno, Nevada. She received a certificate and a cash award of $200.00.  The SciX (Scientific eXchange) Conference is organized by the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) and provides an international forum for the exchange of the most relevant and cutting-edge research in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy. Kelly's research was titled "Recyclable Magnetic Manganese Oxide Coated Nanoparticles: The Effect of Mode of Reagent Addition." She is expected to graduate in May 2015 and continue on to a bright future in the chemistry field.
