A professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy has been awarded a three-year, $140,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to study how chemical elements are spread throughout the Universe. Understanding the processes that move them around is important for knowing how the Earth and our Solar system formed.

Dr. Kathy Cooksey will focus on chemical properties of gas around galaxies, using observations from telescopes on Mauna Kea. Her collaboration includes faculty and students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, St. Michael's College in Vermont, and the University of California at Santa Cruz.

The grant will also fund up to two UH Hilo undergraduates per year, who will conduct publishable research and develop transferable skills, including computer programming, problem solving, and technical writing. This will help them be more competitive, whether they attend graduate school or enter the workforce directly.

The University of Hawai`i Board of Regents is scheduled to vote this month on the appointment of Carolyn Ma as permanent dean of the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy.

Ma is currently in charge of operations, faculty and residents for the college on Oahu, Maui and Kauai. She previously served as a pharmacy management consultant for various hospitals, including Stanford Hospitals and Clinics.
