Tragic: Indiana University Chem PhD Candidate on Downed Malaysian Flight

Indiana University student Karlijn Keijzer was a passenger aboard Malaysian flight 17 which crashed in Ukraine on July 17. The 25 year old was a PhD candidate in chemistry on vacation when she died. A great loss for chemistry. A great loss for all of us.


Fox59 Indianapolis has an interview and nice video tribute with a friend of Karlijn’s talking about her life and the memories they had together. Karlijn was a member of the IU rowing team and had recently earned her master’s degree from IU.


Thoughts and prayers on behalf of the entire Chemistry-Blog team.
