Meet a Student

Kyle Rodriguez

Kyle Rodriguez, a graduate student in Dr. Sam Pazicni’s research group, works as a Graduate Assistant in the University Instrumentation Center (UIC). Since joining the department in 2015, Kyle has been providing student training, scientific instrument maintenance, and the analysis of samples for our external clients using a variety of analytical techniques. Kyle also acts as a liaison to students and faculty by assisting them with their instrumentation needs, representing the UIC at the Graduate Research and Undergraduate Research Conferences, and participating in STEM outreach activities. Kyle recently played a critical role in upgrading the NMR computer systems and control software, ultimately training over forty users to operate the instruments with this new software.  The UIC is thrilled to have Kyle on board for another academic year and is looking forward to all that he has to offer.
