Welcome to Lucia Iezzi

We warmly welcome Lucia Iezzi as a PhD student in the Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry. She has joined the Surface Chemistry group on 1 November 2020.

Lucia Iezzi has obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at the University of Pisa and her Master’s in Environmental Chemistry at the University of Torino. In her master thesis, she investigated the degradation of emerging organic pollutants in water.

At PSI, Lucia Iezzi will investigate the feedbacks between transition metal redox cycling in aqueous organic aerosols with nitrogen oxides and halogen species using a suite of flow tube techniques. In parallel, she will use an explicit aqueous and gas phase atmospheric chemistry model in collaboration with colleagues in Leipzig to extrapolate the laboratory findings to the larger scale in the atmosphere.
