Vanessa Selimovic, ’14, is a graduate student at the University of Montana’s Department of Chemistry. She is currently working on her first first-author paper and just had her second co-author paper published in American Geophysical Union’s journal entitled, “Airborne measurements of western U.S. wildfire emissions: Comparison with prescribed burning and air quality implications.” https://news.agu.org/press-release/wildfires-pollute-much-more-than-previously-thought/. Vanessa is gearing up to do more studies on wildfire emissions for the fall in Northern California. She recently received a $2,500 scholarship specific to a student studying carbohydrate chemistry, in addition to the $3,000 Bertha Morton scholarship she received earlier in the year that Concordia featured. She writes, “On top of my studies, I’m in the process of training to climb Mt. Hood or Mt. Rainier this fall and am spending a lot of quality time with my lovely rescue dog Molly!” Cross-end-article-symbol
