I received my PhD in environmental analytical chemistry from the University of Bremen (Germany) in 1996 and my MSc in analytical chemistry from the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) in 1992.
Prior to joining Laurier in 2021, I was a Professor in the School of the Environment and the Department of Chemistry at Trent University (2002-2021). Before that, I was a Research Scientist at Frontier Geosciences in Seattle, WA, USA (1997-2002).
My research program focuses on the behavior and fate of the trace element selenium in freshwater ecosystems and associated industrial operations. We pursue three main areas of research:
Our research is conducted in collaboration with, and supported by, many government and industrial partners.
I’m usually looking for bright and motivated students at all career stages (undergraduate, MSc, PhD and postdoctoral) to join our research team. Please contact me at email@example.com for specific opportunities currently available. Our research projects deal with various aspects of selenium biogeochemistry in ambient or industrial environments, and involve one or more of the following components:
Where possible and appropriate, opportunities for field work and/or industrial collaboration will be made available to all members of my research group.
I have officially started my appointment at WLU:
I have received $ 200,000 in funding from CFI to buy new analytical instrumentation:
