Chemistry Department Highlights for 2012-2014
When Arrianna Zirbes began her career as a quality control specialist in a microbiological lab at Nestle Nutrition in Eau Claire in 2012, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire graduate didn't have to look far to find another Blugold.
A research team that includes three generations of Blugolds is gaining international attention for developing a new method for converting waste plastics into useful chemicals, a process that has the potential to significantly reduce a waste stream that’s currently sent to landfills.
Dr. Michael Carney has been named the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's associate vice chancellor for curriculum, internationalization and immersion following an internal search.
For the fifth time, a University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire chemistry faculty member has been honored with the prestigious Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award.
