Students trained in our group gain a multidisciplinary skillset in colloid and surface science, microbiology, nanotechnology, and environmental science. Our trainees are developing valuable skills and knowledge relevant to a wide range of fields including energy, environmental protection, petrochemicals, food, pharmaceuticals and advanced materials.
Our alumni are now successfully employed in academia, industry, government agencies, or pursuing advanced degrees. For example, five graduates of the lab have secured professorships at other institutions (McMaster University, University of Ottawa, Lakehead University, Universidad Iberoamericana, Birla Institute of Technology & Science). Many of our undergraduate, M.Eng. and Ph.D. graduates are leading successful careers as engineers or consultants (e.g., GE Energy, Iogen Corp, Shell, Kraft Foods, Maple Leaf Foods, KIK, Opus DaytonKnight, Enerkem, AirBoss Defense). Others have pursued graduate studies at leading institutions (e.g., Cambridge University, ETH Zurich, University of Leeds, University of Toronto) or postdoctoral fellowships (e.g., Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems).
