Dr. Kelly Hines Named to Inaugural Group of Rising Stars in Measurement Science

Portrait of Dr. Kelly Hines

Dr. Kelly Hines, Assistant Professor in the UGA Department of Chemistry, has been selected by the American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications as a Rising Star in Measurement Science. The inaugural class of 20 Rising Stars was chosen from a group of over 300 nominees. "Although the applications of measurement science are diverse ranging from single entity detection to biosensing to environmental monitoring, and this group encompasses the best of separations, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry, the emerging themes of machine learning/artificial intelligence, portable assays and sensors, and next generation -omics approaches show the future of this field." 

Dr. Hines joined the faculty at UGA in 2019, where her lab is using chromatographic separations and ion mobility-mass spectrometry to detect and investigate antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens. She has been recognized as a Female Role Model in Analytical Chemistry by Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, an Outstanding Emerging Investigator by the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, and is the recipient of an ASMS Research Award.
