Welcome to the Pratt Lab blog! Dr. Kerri Pratt is an assistant professor in the Departments of Chemistry and Earth & Environmental Sciences and faculty associate of the Program in the Environment at the University of Michigan. We study atmospheric trace gases, particles, snow, and clouds and their interactions with the biosphere (forests) and cryosphere (snow and sea ice). Our interdisciplinary research has relevance to climate change, air quality, and human health. As an analytical chemistry lab, we primarily use novel mass spectrometry techniques during our field research. We invite you to follow our adventures in (and outside!) the lab!

Congratulations to Matt!

Congratulations to Chemistry PhD student Matt Gunsch for being awarded an University of Michigan Rackham Conference Travel Grant ($800) to attend the 33rd Annual American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) Conference in Orlando, FL later this month!  Matt will present a poster on his research on the chemical composition of individual particles in northern Michigan from fieldwork at the University of Michigan Biological Station this past summer.
