Congratulations to Rob Pepin, who defended his PhD work “Gaseous Studies of Ionic Chromophores and Peptide Cation Radicals Generated from Electron Transfer” on March 4th, 2016. He was a student in Professor Frank Turecek’s lab for the past 4 and a half years. Following a short stint post graduation in Professor Turecek’s laboratory, Rob and his wife welcomed a son in July. He is now looking for work as a postdoctoral scientist in the Seattle area. He is excited to put his training to use in new applications.
