The $120,000 award is for the Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry

Nga Lee “Sally” Ng, associate professor in Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, recently won an award from The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation’s Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry.

The award provides $120,000 over two years to the principal investigator (Ng) to appoint a postdoctoral fellow.

Ng’s research interest is in aerosol chemistry, air quality, and health effects. Her research focuses on both laboratory experiments and field measurements to understand the formation and evolution of atmospheric nanoparticles (aerosols). 

She won a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2015.

The purpose of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc., is to advance the science of chemistry, chemical engineering and related sciences as a means of improving human relations and circumstances throughout the world. Established in 1946 by chemist, inventor and businessman Camille Dreyfus as a memorial to his brother Henry, the Foundation became a memorial to both men when Camille Dreyfus died in 1956. Throughout its history the Foundation has sought to take the lead in identifying and addressing needs and opportunities in the chemical sciences.
