Kevin Rosso Joins National Academies' Committee

Kevin Rosso to serve on National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's committee

Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Rosso at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on his appointment to a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's committee. The committee will develop the agenda for basic research in separations science. Through this agenda, they will lay the groundwork for a new era in separations focusing on fundamental science.

Rosso was asked to join based on his expertise in molecular interfaces. Throughout his career, he has conducted both laboratory and computational experiments. Through these experiments, he's clarified the basis for structure-reactivity relationships geochemistry, catalysis, materials science, and electrochemistry. His recent work focuses on unraveling electron transfer across various abiotic-to-biotic interfaces.

A prolific author, he's written or co-written more than 260 journal articles and book chapters. This body of work has earned an H-index of 52. His work has been cited more than 10,000 times. He currently serves on the ACS Earth and Space Chemistryeditorial board. He's received numerous honors, including Mineralogical Society of America Life Fellow, Hallimond Lectureship, and Outstanding Recent Alumnus from the Virginia Tech College of Science. A long-time mentor and educator, he is a visiting professor at the University of Manchester and University of New South Wales. He's also a SERENADE Invited Professor at the University of Grenoble.
