Prof. McNeill will be doing an “AMA” forum on reddit on Monday 3/10.
Look for the thread at: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA starting at noon EDT on Monday. It will look like: “I am a young, tenured, female engineering professor at a major research university. Ask me anything!”
She will be there to answer questions about her experiences as a woman in STEM, our research, our crowdfunding project on Experiment.com, and almost anything else! Please join in!

Mark and Christina have written a new lab note for the Oil Spill project. Check out how far we’ve come!
“…The opportunity to work on a cutting-edge, open-ended problem, without a pat lesson plan, in the company of other scientists is priceless for a student. There’s no better way to teach concepts of innovation, uncertainty, critical problem solving, and the je ne sais quoi we refer to as scientific or engineering ‘intuition’. Success in the form of a research breakthrough, followed by communicating one’s results to the community and the public, builds self-confidence on a professional and personal level…”

We are proud to announce the publication of the long-awaited volume 339 of Topics in Current Chemistry, “Atmospheric and Aerosol Chemistry,” which was edited by VFM and Prof. Parisa Ariya of MacGill University. Click here for the table of contents and full information. Contact VFM for a copy of the McNeill Group chapter, Surface-Active Organics in Atmospheric Aerosols.
We’re happy to announce the publication of our manuscript, “Organic matrix effects on the formation of light-absorbing compounds from a-dicarbonyls in aqueous salt solution,” in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts. This article was an invited contribution to a special issue on aqueous photochemistry. ES:PI is a new open-access journal from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
