Amidst the chaos of lab shutdowns, transitions to an online world, border closures, gradual lab reopenings, and constantly changing research conditions, our team has achieved many milestones! I am humbled by the strength, creativity, and resilience of the people I work with.
Anna Curtin and Caitlin Vail both successfully defended their MASc theses in August 2020. Congratulations to the first graduates of the Green Safe Water Lab!
Dr. Jolie Lam joined us in July 2020 as a postdoctoral fellow, and in September 2020 Grace Tieman and Chris Tremblay joined us as MSc students, while Anna Masarsky joined our team as a co-op student, and Elliot Howell joined us as a Chem 498 thesis student. A belated welcome to all of you!
We’re busy growing cells, writing code, testing optical fibres, building an RO system, understanding surface reaction mechanisms, and designing devices this summer. Welcome Danika, Dave, and Audrey to our team for the summer!
Our team is now four! A warm welcome to Emmanuelle Caws, Anna Curtin, and Caitlin Vail, who joined the Buckley Group in September 2018. Every day we have new boxes of equipment arriving in the lab, and we’re getting set up and underway. Check out their profiles under the Team heading!
We are thrilled to be a part of the team building the greenest Civil Engineering program in Canada.
Have a look around at our many opportunities in drinking water and green chemistry-related research. We are accepting applications from talented graduate and undergraduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering as well as in Chemistry, and we look forward to productive collaborations with local and international partners in the community, industry, academia, and government.
