The title of her thesis is “Understanding the Influence of Nanoparticle Surface Chemistry for the Design of Nanomaterials with Desired Properties”
After graduating, Jaclyn will be heading to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career in Science Policy.
Lundquist faculty members and MBA students partnered with the Knight Campus and others to reimagine the car seat.
The result: WAYB’s Pico car seat.
Among the partners was Aurora Ginzburg, a graduate student in the Hutchison lab, who served as the liaison between WAYB and the students as they sought to integrate greener, more sustainable materials into their new design.

The fellowship was established in 2017 in honor of Professor Emeritus John Keana, and provides annual fellowship awards to graduate students studying in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oregon. The award may be used to assist with defraying the academic costs associated with attending the university such as tuition, fees, books, miscellaneous supplies, research and living expenses.
The first John Keana Graduate Student Fellowship was awarded in 2018-19 to Matthew Cerda in the Pluth Lab.
Tawney Knecht, a 4th-year chemistry graduate student in the Hutchison Lab, has been selected to receive the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award. Her proposed research project, “Precisely Nanostructured Indium Oxide Electrocatalysts Toward Efficient CO2 Conversion”, will be conducted at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado.
The SCGSR program provides funding to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory. Tawney is one of 49 new SCGSR awardees from 39 universities across the nation. This research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis and address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission by providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at DOE facilities.
