Tracey Oudenhoven


Tracey's primary research project in the Zanni group is studying electron transfer in dye-sensitized nanocrystalline thin films using 2DIR, transient absorption, and transient 2DIR. She is also involved in technology development.

Tracey came to Madison from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where she received a B.S. in Chemistry in 2011. There, she studied the reactivity of ruthenium catalysts under Prof. Jason D'Acchioli, employing both synthetic and computational techniques. She also spent a summer at UC-Irvine under the guidance of Prof. Peter Rentzepis studying the transient absorption of methylene blue.

When not tuning up her laser, Tracey enjoys cooking, baking, watching Packer football, and spending time with friends and family. She has tried almost every flavor of ice cream in Madison, but always has her eyes peeled for new ones... She is also the Zanni group webmaster, so feel free to e-mail her if you notice any problems with the site!
