Abstract:

Chemist and professor Krishna L. Foster was born on January 7, 1970 in Culver City, California. Foster graduated from high school in 1988, and received a NASA Fellowship through the Women in Science and Engineering Program. After earning her B.S. degree in chemistry from Spelman College in 1992, she received her Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1998. Two years later, she accepted a position as an assistant professor at California State University, Los Angeles, where she was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2006. Her work at California State University, Los Angeles, has focused on the effects of sunlight on pollutants at the air-water interface. Her lab has also worked to develop techniques in studying reduced phosphorous oxyanions in natural waters. Additionally, Foster has served as a mentor to many students. In 2007, she was honored with the Distinguished Women Award at California State University.
