Welcome to the Fournier Lab!
We design and implement new techniques which combine the sensitivity and selectivity of mass spectrometry with the time resolution of ultrafast spectroscopies to capture and interrogate fast chemical reactions with molecular-level detail, offering new insight into reaction mechanisms that are too challenging to study with standard methods.
The group attends the 75th ISMS meeting at the Univ. of Illinois. Liangyi, Jessika, and Joe all gave presentations.
Jessika’s paper on the TA and 2D IR spectroscopy of acetylacetone has been accepted to JPCB!
Joe has been named a recipient of the 2022 Flygare Award in Molecular Spectroscopy.
A big welcome to first-year graduate students Valerie Winkler and Zifan Ma!
