|Lenore Kubie is a postdoc at the University of Wyoming lab of Dr. Bruce Parkinson, and is the current lead of the Solar Hydrogen Activity research Kit (SHArK). |
She obtained her PhD in chemistry from the University of Rochester in 2015. At the University of Rochester she worked with Dr. Kara Bren and Dr. Todd Krauss, studying photoinduced charge transfer, both into and out of single-walled carbon nanotubes. Additionally, Lenore studied cobalt-centered, oxygen tolerant, hydrogen generation catalysts.
In 2010, Lenore received the NSF IGERT fellowship in energy to study at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory of Dr. Jeff Blackburn. Additionally, as part of the NSF IGERT fellowship, Lenore traveled to Ghana, Africa twice to attend the International Solar Energy Experts Workshop (I-SEE 2012) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), teach solar energy fundamentals at grade schools around Ghana, and run a multi-day solar panel workshop at the Takoradi Technical Institute in Takoradi, Ghana.
