Kieber Receives Fulbright Award

Friday, April 04, 2014

Professor Robert Kieber of the UNCW Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has received a Fulbright Award to travel to Brazil next spring to enable ethanol in rainwater research, in collaboration with Lúcia Campos at the Universidade de São Paulo. The proposed research is on the forefront of atmospheric science and will help delineate why the concentration of ethanol, a biologically and chemically labile compound is so elevated in Brazil’s atmospheric samples.

"I am very excited about the chance to travel to Brazil," says Kieber. "It will afford me the opportunity to research how current and project use of biofuels will impact the chemistry of the atmosphere."
