Lindsey Welch completed her doctoral research in physical-inorganic chemistry in the area of surface science. By using ultra-high vacuum conditions (‹10-9 Torr), she studied the interactions of gas phase molecules on platinum and tin-platinum alloy surfaces. This fundamental surface chemistry determined the activation barriers for the desorption and reaction of nitrogen-containing cyclic molecules.
