Department Seminar: Thursday 21 April, 2022
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 several notable honors, including a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship and an FRQNT postdoctoral fellowship. His appointment as a Tier II chair in ‘Organofluorine Chemistry and Catalysis’ followed shortly after he joined the faculty. He is a very active participant in the Canadian Centre for Research in Advanced Fluorine Technologies (C-CRAFT). Dr Hamel’ talk “Organofluorine Compounds as the Focal Point of Catalytic Method Development” will certainly be of particular interest to many of you. Join us on April 21 at the usual time, 3:00 PM CDT on Zoom https://zoom.us/j/94146015955.
