KL (Kelly) Sowers

Postdoctoral Researcher; Nanoparticle Synthesis and Cation Exchange (NanoReg2)

Ornstein Lab. 169
Telephone: +31(0)30-2532603


Kelly is from Buffalo, New York, USA. She graduated with a PhD from the Department of Chemistry of the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York in 2016, working primarily on quantum dot synthesis. She is now a postdoc primarily in the Condensed Matter and Interfaces group under Professor Celso de Mello Donegá, also making an appearance in the Blab lab in Biophysics.

Her project will be built from the foundation of nanoparticle synthesis and sequential cation exchange to produce environmentally benign, alloyed particles: nanoparticles copper-indium-selenide (CISe), and copper-indium-sulfide (CIS), and the heterostructured nanoparticle copper-indium-selenide/copper-indium-sulfide (CISe/CIS).

Kelly’s work is part of — and financed by — the European Union NanoReg2 project.
