Kevin Rosso Invited to Give Prestigious International Lecture

Kevin Rosso
Kevin Rosso, Hallimond Lecturer

Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Rosso at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on being invited by the Mineralogical Society to be the 47th Hallimond Lecturer. Established in 1970, this yearly lecture is a tribute to Arthur Hallimond, a pioneer in the fields of mineralogy and microscopy instrument design. The nominee, selected by the Council, is invited to speak at a prominent annual meeting supported by the Mineralogical Society. Rosso will deliver the lecture at the European Mineralogical Conference in Italy this September.

Rosso was chosen for his expertise in experimental and computational geochemical and surface science. His contributions include pushing the frontiers of scanning probe microscopies to study the interfaces between liquids and solids, and establishing computational approaches to predict and understand electron transfer kinetics. His work has enabled breakthroughs in understanding complex molecular and interfacial systems broadly across disciplines.

A Fellow of the Mineralogical Society of America, Rosso has written or co-written 230+ peer-reviewed publications. About two-thirds of his articles appear in top 10 journals. A Laboratory Fellow at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, he has served on a breadth of panels for setting national science agendas, on advisory boards for major programs, and on editorial boards for scientific journals. He holds three honorary appointments at universities internationally.


Rosso's geochemistry research is primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Geosciences, and Biosciences Division.
