Amanda Frossard, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, was awarded an CAREER award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This is the most prestigious award given by NSF to early career faculty. This award includes five years of funding to support Dr. Frossard’s research and teaching in the field of atmospheric chemistry. Her work will focus on understanding the chemical and physical properties of surfactants in atmospheric aerosol particles and measuring the influence of surfactants on aerosol particle hygroscopic growth. This project will include two field campaigns at Skidaway Institute of Oceanography. Additionally, Dr. Frossard will expand the local Athens network of low-cost air quality sensors and bring atmospheric chemistry experiments to classroom laboratories.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds research and education in science and engineering, through grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements. The Foundation accounts for about 20 percent of federal support to academic institutions for basic research. 

More information on Dr. Frossard’s work can be found on her group website:
