Ostrowski named ‘emerging investigator’

Dr. Alexis Ostrowski’s childhood fascination with light and its properties led her to a career in photochemical sciences and a faculty position at BGSU. Since joining the chemistry faculty in 2012, she has published novel research on using light to control the mechanical properties of biomaterials and metal-containing polymers.

Ostrowski was recently named as one of 16 “Emerging Investigators in Inorganic Photochemistry and Photophysics” by the American Chemical Society and was featured in the ACS Select Virtual Issue. The 16 researchers, all of whom received their doctorates in 2004 or thereafter and are working in inorganic photochemistry and photophysics, were chosen based on papers published in such journals as Inorganic Chemistry and Chemistry of Materials.

Undergraduates to present research on diversity

The top three presenters at the conference will receive original glass awards created by Joel O’Dorisio, School of Art.
The University community is invited to attend the Undergraduate Symposium on Diversity Jan. 20 in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Hosted by the Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURS), this second annual event focuses on “Opportunities and Challenges for the Inclusion of Diversity in Higher Education and Society.”

About 40 undergraduates will present their posters and share their work on topics related to gender, race, cultural and ethnic diversity. Their presentations are based on undergraduate courses related to diversity or on creative or scholarly work or research conducted with a faculty mentor.
