WELCOME TO THE HUFFMAN GROUP
The research of the Huffman Group focuses on analytical and atmospheric chemistry, emphasizing the development and application of new scientific approaches to addressing environmental problems. Most of this work involves atmospheric aerosols from both field and lab perspectives. Our interests span from cloud nucleation and spore detection to pollen allergies and respiratory diseases. Science communication and community engagement are important goals that lace through it all.
We are looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students. Graduate students are generally admitted with funding into the program with bachelor's degrees in chemistry. Undergraduate students at DU may be considered from all majors/disciplines of science and engineering and at all stages of study. If interested in learning more, please email Dr. Huffman with interest.
DU offers support for undergraduate research through the URC, course credit, and work-study awards. Click above to learn more:

ADVOCACY & OUTREACH
Group PI Dr. Alex Huffman has been actively engaged in public education about aerosols and airborne infection prevention strategies during the COVID pandemic e.g. through media interviews, lectures and panels, Twitter, engagement with CDPHE, and newspaper Op-Eds (i.e., Apr. 2021, Apr. 2021, Oct. 2021).
Google database of infectious disease media article & 1,000's of other resources curated by Dr. Huffman here.
Doctoral student Rachel Davey won the 2022 Graduate Student Service Award for the College of Natural
Sciences and Mathematics for her frequent efforts to engage in outreach & community and to make science widely accessible to all.
