JCAP’s Alexandra Krawicz Receives Young Investigator Award

Alexandra Krawicz — a postdoctoral researcher working with Physical Biosciences Division principal investigator Gary Moore at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) — was presented with a Photochemistry Gordon Research Conference Young Investigator Award at the 2013 meeting held in Easton Massachusetts. Krawicz was recognized for her research efforts on interfacing noble-metal-free fuel production catalysts to visible-light-absorbing semiconductors. Her presentation at the meeting titled, “Photochemically Active Cobaloxime-Modified Electrodes,” described work recently published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The research provides a viable route to developing an integrated photocathode material for use in a solar-fuels generator.
