Environmental Toxicology Graduate Students

Macon Abernathy
Macon Abernathy, from Dr. Samantha Ying's Lab, prepares a soil sample bearing high levels of arsenic for x-ray absorption spectroscopy using a liquid nitrogen cooling system and high sensitivity germanium detector.

Miranda Aiken
Miranda Aiken, from Dr. Samantha Ying's Lab, pours liquid nitrogen into a storage container at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory. The liquid nitrogen is used to keep her mineral samples cold so oxidation does not occur during X-ray absorption spectroscopy analysis.

Vanessa Cheng
Vanessa Cheng from Dr. Volz's Lab sorts newly fertilized zebrafish embryos under a microscope. Zebrafish embryos are sorted prior to beginning experiments to ensure they are developing properly.

Jin Chen
Jin Chen from Dr. Ying-Hsuan Lin's Atmospheric Chemistry and Environmental Toxicology Group using a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify chemical compounds.
