Kathryn Riley Receives National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship


KathrynRileyKathryn Riley was recently awarded a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship for a research proposal entitled “Electrochemical Investigation of ZnO Nanoparticles at the Nano, Molecular, and Biomolecular Scale”. The proposed work aims to use a variety of analytical techniques to evaluate the potential toxicity of ZnO nanoparticles, which are commonly used in cosmetic products like sunscreens. The research will be conducted in the Material Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the advisement of Dr. William MacCrehan.
