SCHOLAR SPOTLIGHT: KAREN UFFALUSSY


Karen Uffalussy, 2003–2004 Astronaut Scholar from North Carolina State University, was awarded a fellowship from the National Science Foundation to lead a research group of chemical engineering undergraduates in Japan. For four months, she lived in Osaka, Japan and worked in Kaneda Sensei’s laboratory at Osaka University. In this laboratory, Mizugaki Sensei, guided her research work and helped her build on her knowledge of autoclave reactors and rhodium cluster synthesis. After intense work, they obtained impressive results. They determined that a dendrimer encapsulated rhodium carbonyl cluster process was more effective in turning this chemical into a much more useful and valuable one under considerably less harsh and more environmentally friendly conditions than previous work had reported.
