BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana University says a graduate student from the Netherlands is among those killed when a Malaysian jetliner was shot down over Ukraine.

Twenty-five-year-old Karlijn Keijzer was one of 298 people from nearly a dozen nations who died when the plane crashed Thursday en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Keijzer was a doctoral student in the chemistry department and was known as a dedicated researcher who focused on making the world better through science. She also taught courses in organic chemistry, biochemistry and biosynthesis.

Keijzer was a member of IU's women's rowing team during the 2011 season and help guide it to a 14-5 record.

She was on summer vacation at the time of the crash.

IU President Michael McRobbie called her death a loss for the university.
