Ashley S. McNeill completed her BS in chemistry at Austin Peay State University with a minor in physics in 2011.  Before coming to the University of Alabama for her PhD, she obtained a MS in chemistry from the University of Rhode Island in 2013 and an MLIS from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2015.  Formerly, she has conducted experimental research in atmospheric chemistry pertaining to the measurement of peroxide concentrations via positive-ion mode chemical ionization mass spectrometry (P-CIMS) as designed for airborne experiments (for example, the DC3 campaign in 2012).  Currently, she uses electronic structure theory to model the chemical properties of single molecules with biological and/or geochemical significance, including partnership with the Cassady experimental mass spectrometry group for the study of amino acids and small peptides.
