Recognition of Piia and Jaanus on scientific works competition

This week two of my students have been recognized by different organizations for their outstanding scientific work. Jaanus Liigand received first prize in the field of natural science for his Masters thesis “Electrospray ionisation efficiency scales: mobile phase effects and transferability” on a scientific works competition by Estonian Research Council. Also our (the theses were supervised by me and Karl Kaupmees) student Piia Liigand (Burk) was nominated and awarded by Estonian Academy of Science for her work “Expanding the electrospray ionization efficiency scale in positive and negative mode ESI”.

By now all three parts of Jaanus’ thesis have been submitted for publication. The last part on pH effect was submitted only on Tuesday. Piia has also by now submitted a paper on her first task about multiply charged compounds’ ionization efficiency.

Both of the students are continuing their work as PhD students in our lab. We hope to see a lot of good science also during next four years!
