(Reuters) - A Dutch doctoral student and former member of the Indiana University rowing team was among the passengers killed when Malaysian airliner went down in Ukraine, the university said Friday in a statement.

Karlijn Keijzer, 25, was a doctoral student in the chemistry department in the university's college of Arts and Sciences, had earned a master's degree from the university and was a member of the women's rowing team in the 2011 season, the university said.

"The Indiana rowing family is deeply saddened by the news of Karlijn's sudden passing," Indiana head rowing coach Steve Peterson said in a statement.
