Jeff Rubino '05 has received one of four awards issued to undergraduates this year by the New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS). Rubino used EPR and Vis spectroscopy to study enzyme reactions. Associate Professor of Chemistry and president elect of the Council on Undergraduate Research Tim Elgren was his advisor. According to its website, SAS is a nonprofit organization "formed to advance and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the art and science of spectroscopy" where "spectroscopy means the science and art of absorption, emission, Raman, mass, and related form of spectral study for determining the composition and structure of matter."
