Two days before defending his thesis, David had an opportunity to discuss his research with Kathleen Wynne, the Premier of Ontario.

Congratulations, David!

February 18, 2018

David successfully defended his PhD thesis ( “A Passive Air Sampler for Precise, Spatially Distributed Atmospheric Gaseous Mercury Monitoring and Source Characterization”) on February 15. Dr. J. Sonke from Geosciences Environnement Toulouse was the external examiner.
