Professor Wyslouzil, whose research program focuses on aerosol and particle technology, is credited with creating the world's most cubic ice. The ability to make and study cubic ice in the laboratory could improve computer models of how clouds interact with sunlight and the atmosphere—keys to understanding water, air, and climate change.

Her research has been selected by the editors of publications as Journal of Chemical Physics, Argonne Today, and Chemistry World to be promoted as Featured Articles and Editors' Picks. She was inducted into the American Association for Aerosol Research as a lifelong fellow in 2018.
