Our final speaker of the year is Prof. Jean-Denys Hamel, a CRC Tier II chair at the University of Lethbridge. Prof. Hamel received his Ph.D. in 2018 from Université Laval under the supervision of Prof. Jean-François Paquin and went on to a postdoctoral fellowship at UC Berkeley before joining the faculty at Lethbridge. He earned...
We invite you to our CHEM 4710 “Research Project in Chemistry or Biochemistry” oral presentation day. The event will be held on Saturday, April 9 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm in 205 Armes Bldg. A booklet with the program and presentations’ abstracts is available here.
Our next speaker, Prof. Cory Widdifield, from University of Regina will present a talk titled “NMR Crystallography: Structure Refinements, Verifications, and Determinations”. Dr. Widdifield is combining NMR with computational analyses to achieve structural refinements that are comparable to methods such as X-ray crystallography, hence the description “NMR Crystallography”. The seminar will be held on Zoom...
Our speaker this week is Prof. Rohith Reddy, from the University of Texas at Houston. While his appointment is in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, you will see from the abstract that his research focus is in the application of biodiagnostic spectroscopy (usually infrared imaging) to understand disease. The two specific areas he...
We invite you to our Department’s 2022 seminar. Professor Maryam Ebrahimi from Lakehead University will be presenting a talk titled “Rational design and characterization of molecular-based low-dimensional nanomaterials on surfaces”. Please note: Owing to a schedule conflict, she is unable to present during our usual seminar slot on Thursday. She has kindly agreed to give...
Our seminar speaker for next Thursday, March 17, is Prof. James Gauld from University of Windsor. Prof. Gauld studies catalysis, and is presently working in the field of computational enzymology. In addition to this challenging research, he is actively involved in finding ways to make STEM more inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community. Prof. Gauld will...
Professor Amy Stevens from University of Saskatchewan will be presenting a talk titled “The ultrafast dynamics of azulene derivatives”. The seminar will be held on Thursday, March 3 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. via Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/99911619724.
We invite you to our Department’s 2022 seminar. Professor Eden E. L. Tanner from University of Mississippi will give a talk titled “Ionic Liquids as Antifouling Polymeric Nanoparticle Coatings”.
