|The reason why I choose atmospheric chemistry as my Ph.D research field is that what Iím doing now combines all I learned as an undergrad, and I can learn something new and challenging here. Iíve been working on the spectroscopy and kinetics of alkoxy radicals with ether or ketone functional groups for the past few months, and will work partly on the isotope effect in the reactions of methoxy radical + O2 and methoxy radical + NO2.|
|Hongyi is a Ph. D. student from China. She is interested in studying the mechanism and kinetics of radical reactions using both theoretical calculation and experimental methods. From January to August 2010, she went to NCAR (National Center of Atmospheric Research) to do a FT-IR experiment with a 47-L chamber. Outside of lab, Hongyi likes music (a fan of Linkin Park), volleyball, cooking, eating and some other fun things like airsoft.|
|Yuge Jiao is a Ph.D. student who joined the group in August 2011. His work is to apply computational chemistry method to study atmospheric chemistry. He is interested in theoretical chemistry and physics. Outside of the lab, he is a BIG basketball fan and he also likes other sports|
|Yuan Sha joined the group in Spring 2011. She got her bachelor's degree from Nanjing University in China, and now she is a Ph.D. student working on computational studies of peroxy radical reactions. She likes playing volleball, basketball and plants vs. zombies.|

Lei Xue lxue @syr.edu
|Lei Xue joined the group in Fall 2012 as a Ph.D. student. He got his M.S. from Ocean University of China in marine chemistry. Now he is pursuing his Ph.D. degree in environmental chemistry. His work will focus on kinetic measurements for reactions of reactions oxidizing mercury in the atmosphere.|
|Matt is an undergraduate student in Bioprocess Engineering at ESF. He started working in Spring 2011 on calculations on Hg(II) compounds, and continued that work during the following semester with the support of Dr. Huiting Mao. He has continued working on mercury chemistry and also on the autoignition chemistry of diesel and biodiesel.|
