​Carly Byron and Aeri Gosselin

Carly Byron and Aeri Gosselin, graduate students in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will have the opportunity to work with some of modern science’s most advanced tools, courtesy of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Laboratories.

The two are among 62 graduate students from 50 universities nationwide who were selected to receive competitive grants from the DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program. The awards support the students’ travel and up to $3,000 per month in living expenses while in residence at a National Lab, a period that may range from three to 12 months.

Byron, a doctoral student of Prof. Andrew Teplyakov, will use a synchrotron called the Advanced Photon Source — a particle accelerator at Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago. Since there are less than 20 synchrotron facilities in the U.S. Carley is very excited for the DOE grant.

Gosselin, a doctoral candidate in the research group of Prof. Eric Bloch did research on porous molecules called “coordination cages” in the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence-Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in California, hosted by Prof. Brett Helms. These unique molecules are being explored as a new designer material for making cheaper ways to store economically important gases such as hydrogen and methane.
