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 the chemical interactions of atmospheric trace gases, particles, clouds, and snow, with a focus on the Polar Regions and wintertime environments. Our interdisciplinary research has relevance to climate change, air quality, and human health. As an analytical chemistry lab, we primarily apply novel mass spectrometry techniques to our field research. We invite you to follow our adventures in (and outside!) the lab!

Prof. Pratt receives college teaching award!
Prof. Kerri Pratt was awarded the 2017 Individual Award for Outstanding Contributions to Undergraduate Education from the University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts! Nominations for this award are eligible from all levels of teaching faculty in the college (not just junior faculty), so this is super rewarding. This award to Prof. Pratt recognizes "novel opportunities for learning through authentic research experiences" in our newly developed general chemistry laboratory course! Together Prof. Pratt and PhD students Nate May and Stephen McNamara have now each won teaching awards for our development of this new snow chemistry research course!
