Connecting to Chemistry Alumnae in California
In April, Chemistry Professor Emeritus Morton Z. Hoffman was invited by Concordia University Irvine to deliver an International Year of Chemistry (IYC) lecture, “The IYC: Our Life, Our Future,” as well as to serve as a consultant to the Chemistry Department, at Concordia, as they developed their 10-year strategic plan. While in the “the neighborhood,” he caught up with two BU alumnae, Professor Catherine Clark (GRS 1996), whose thesis research he directed, and Ms. Jenny Talbot (CAS 2004), who was a student in his CH111/112 class (2000-01) and served as a PLTL workshop leader (2001-02).
Alumna Jenny Talbot did undergraduate and post-baccalaureate research with Dr. Adrien Finzi in the Biology Department on forest ecology and biogeochemistry. She will receive her Ph.D. from the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California Irvine next month, and will begin a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Minnesota at the end of the summer.
