Congratulations to summer 2016 D-RISE Pratt Lab researcher Rashad Prendergast (Cass Technical High School) for being awarded 4th Place in Earth & Environmental Sciences at the 2017 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, CA! He presented his summer research poster titled "Impact of Road Salt Usage on Atmospheric Concentrations of Cl and Na PM2.5"! Great job Rashad, and thank you to his mentor Pratt Lab post-doc Dr. Katie Kolesar!
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!
