Portrait of Isabella TrevinoIsabella Trevino is one of the REU students this summer. She is a student at Hendrix College where she is majoring in Chemistry and Spanish. She is interested in Bioanalytical Chemistry and in her spare time enjoys playing soccer, reading, or going to the gym.

Portrait of Lauren SkrajewskiLauren Skrajewski is a junior Chemistry B.S. major at Clemson University from New Jersey. Originally a chemical engineering major, switched to chemistry for the experience of labs. She is interested in Bioanalytical with a pharmaceutical focus. In her spare time she enjoys running, playing/coaching soccer, and volunteering at soup kitchens.

Portrait of Rafael CardosoRafael Melo Cardoso is a PhD stduent at the Federal University of Ubverlandia (Brazil) and has extensive experience in electroanalysis and microfluidic devices. During his visit at Clemson, and as a collaboration with Dr. Blanes he developed new mechanisms to control fluids in plastic devices. Read more...

Portrait of Matt HurtMatthew Hurtt graduated from Winthrop University in 2018 with a BS in Chemistry, where he performed research with Dr. Robin Lammi. he worked with us on the summer of 2018 on the adsorption of proteins over nanocavities. After two semesters with us, he decided to move to inorganic chemistry under the supervision of Dr. Kolis. We wish him all the best! Read more...

He is interested in Environmental Science and Toxicology. In his free time, he enjoys playing guitar and hiking. Read more...

Portrait of Bailey GibsonBailey Gibson was a part of the EUREKA! Summer research program and is majoring in Chemistry as an undergraduate at Clemson University. In her spare time she enjoys playing sports and volunteering. Her interests are linked to the development of carbon electrodes and their application in the biosensing field or nanotechnology and microfluidics.

Portrait of Diego González-CasamachinDiego González-Casamachin graduated from Univeridad del Valle (Colombia) with a BS in Chemical Engineering and is currently enrolled in a PhD Program focused on Sustainable Processes at the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo León (Mexico). He visited our lab to learn about electrochemical methods to characterize ZnO/PPy catalysts employed in photocatalytic elimination of azo dyes in an annular continuos reactor. Read more...

Portrait of Thiaho CordeiroThiago Gomes Cordeiro received his B.S. in Chemistry with Specialization in Technological Chemistry from the University Presbytherian Mackenzie - UPM (Brazil) in 2011. In 2014 he got his Master degree in Chemistry (Analytical Chemistry), from the University of Sao Paulo – USP (Brazil). Currently, he is a Ph.D. student and he has been working in the development of a miniaturized photocatalytic reactor by UV-LED for the on-line sample pretreatment of organic matter and/or derivatization step prior the monitoring/determination of the products of the reaction by HG-AAS and CE-C4D.

Portrait of Sarah HoltsclawSarah Holtsclaw was our REU student during the summer of 2017. Sarah joined us from Southwestern Michigan College and worked in a number of projects, including the adorption of proteins to cellulose substrates. Read more...

Portrait of Kaylee ClarkKaylee Clark came as a Junior in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematical Science. She was our favourite player in the Women's rugby team, volunteered with ClemsonLIFE, and was a member of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society. She received the Clemson Undergrad Award for Analytical Chemistry (2016 and 2017) and worked in collaboration with Tomas on a new project aimed at the development and characterization of fluorescent nanoparticles. She is now pursuing her PhD in Chemistry at Colorado State University. Read more...

Portrait of Tomas BenavidesDr. Tomas E. Benavidez graduated with a BS in Biochemistry (2004) and a PhD in Chemistry (2010) from the National University of Cordoba, Argentina under the supervision of Dr. Baruzzi. After working with Dr. Schmickler and Dr. Santos at Universität Ulm (Germany), Dr. Benavidez joined the lab to investigate the effect of potential applied during the adsorption of macromolecules to different nanostructured films. Since then, he has also gained experience in electrophoretic separations and the development of carbon-based nanomaterials. Read more...

Portrait of Dr. Ferreira-Santos Dr. Mauro S. Ferreira-Santos visited us from the University of Sao Paulo to work on a miniatuirized platform to perform electrochemical derivatization of samples prior to their analysis by CE. Besides becoming the expert in moonshine, Mauro was also involved in other projects and developed a simple way to engrave devices using wax as sacrificial layer. He also became one of the favorite capoeira instructors in Clemson! He is now a postdoc at NASA/JPL. Read more...

Portrait of Dr. CostaDr. Eric Tavares da Costa (Pop) joined the lab to develop the newest prototype of the Lab-on-a-Robot. Pop demostrated that it is possible to work with chemistry and electronics at the same time. After two year at NASA, he returned to Brazil. Read more...

Portrait of Dr. CombaDr. Fausto Comba obtained his BS in Biochemistry and PhD from the National University of Cordoba-Argentina in 2007 and 2014, respectively. His area of expertize is the development of electroanalytical sensors integrating nanoparticles. He joined the lab for a few months in 2015 to work on the development of electrochemical sensors using paper-based carbon electrodes. Read more...
