Gurki Malhi - MSc (completed Jan 2012)


MSc. Jan. 2010 to Dec. 2011

I completed my undergraduate degree in biology at Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) in 2009. During my undergraduate degree I began to develop an interest in aquatic toxicology, which lead me to join the McGeer lab to commence my MSc studies in Integrative Biology. My project was on assessing the potential risk and adverse effects of metal oxide nanoparticles on Hyalella azteca. My research will ultimately contribute to further our understanding the effects metal oxide nanoparticles may have in the environment.

For 2010/2011 I was the president of the biology graduate students association (BGSA). I was on the board of directors within the WLU-GSA, representing the faculty of science. Also was part of the events committee within the WLU-GSA and was responsible for planning / execution of events for all graduate students at the Waterloo campus.
