University of Oregon's Dr. Geraldine Richmond, a professor of chemistry, will travel to Thailand and Vietnam as a U.S. Science Envoy. Richmond will engage at the citizen and government levels with representatives from the scientific, academic and business communities to discuss ways to build and strengthen research collaboration networks between scientists and engineers in our three nations. 

Professor Richmond is recognized for her work on complex surface chemistry, with relevance to important problems in energy production, environmental remediation, atmospheric chemistry and bio-molecular surfaces. She has also played an important role in setting our country’s national scientific agenda through her service on many science boards and advisory panels.
