Dr. Yacovitch completed her graduate work under Prof. Daniel Neumark at the University of California, Berkeley. Her graduate projects include the study of several reactive radicals and transition state intermediates using variant of photoelectron spectroscopy. She has collaborated internationally on the IR spectroscopy of small atmospherically-relevant anion clusters using a free-electron laser. Her expertise lies in molecular spectroscopy and high vacuum systems. At Aerodyne Research, Dr. Yacovitch is involved in IR laser instrument designs and applications for field measurements including the Aerodyne Mobile Laboratory programs.
