Christine Payne, a researcher with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, has been elected Councilor for the Physical Chemistry division of the American Chemistry Society (ACS).

“This is a way for me to contribute or give back to an organization that I’ve benefited from,” says Payne, an associate professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Councilors in the ACS, who act as an advisory body, are elected by either their local section or division. In Payne’s case, she was elected through the Physical Chemistry division.

“The division organizes symposia at ACS meetings, which I’ve been attending since 1999,” Payne says. “So I appreciate that they need volunteers to keep the organization running. And more generally, I think scientific societies like ACS are important for giving chemistry a voice.”

Payne begins her two-year term this month.
