Faculty/Staff Activities

StollA research paper titled "2D Assisted Liquid Chromatography (2DALC) – A Chemometric Approach to Improve Accuracy and Precision of Quantitation in Liquid Chromatography using 2D Separation, Dual Detectors, and Multivariate Curve Resolution" has been accepted for publication in the journal Analytica Chimica Acta (doi:10.1016/j.aca.2014.12.009). This work is the result of a collaboration between Dwight Stoll (Chemistry), Prof. Sarah Rutan and Daniel Cook of Virginia Commonwealth University, and Prof. Peter Carr of the University of Minnesota. The paper describes the development of a new mathematical approach to interpretation of data obtained from separations of difficult-to-separate mixtures using two-dimensional liquid chromatography.

FremoRebecca Fremo (English) recently had two pieces accepted for publication. Her poem, "Collisions," will appear in the February issue of Red River Review. Her essay, "Here There Be Snakes," will be published in the spring issue of Compose: A Journal of Simply Good Writing. This is Fremo's first published piece of creative nonfiction.

YORYumiko Oshima-Ryan (Music) gave a charity piano concert, Jan. 9, 2015, in Nara City, Japan and raised approximately $8,000. The profits will be sent to the Children's Library, "Small House" built for refugees in Rikuzentakata in Iwate Prefecture. This is her second Charity Concert for children in Rikuzentakata. On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami triggered the Fukushima nuclear disaster which is ongoing and the people's needs are still high. If you would be able to support the Children's Library in Rikuzentakata in Iwate Prefecture, please contact Yumiko at yumiko@gustavus.edu.
