Associate Professor of Chemistry

Her research has included work on the gas phase oxidation of mercury in the atmosphere, halogen chemistry of the arctic and the use of remote sensing, and the impacts of passively degassing volcanoes on the biogeochemical cycling of trace gases species such as ozone, mercury, and halogens. She joined Lawrence University as Assistant Professor of Chemistry in the Fall of 2013 and has been working on the development of a low-cost, mobile laboratory for atmospheric measurements. This work has culminated in the development of ARTEMIS – Atmospheric Research Trailer for Environmental Monitoring and Interactive Science. ARTEMIS has been deployed to monitor the air quality effects of oil and gas activity in the Bakken Shale basin and near a sand quarry in Fremont, WI. In between teaching and researching, Professor Donohoue enjoys sharing ARTEMIS with general audiences, as a way to foster a love of science.
