Myrna obtained a BSc and PhD from the University of Alberta and is currently a Professor of Environmental Chemistry. She is also the Associate Director of the Environmental NMR Centre and the Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Integrative Molecular Biogeochemistry.
Ronald has a BSc and PhD from the University of Toronto. He is a Senior Research Associate and is responsible for daily operations in the Environmental NMR Centre and NMR operations in the TRACES Centre.
Usman is a postdoctoral fellow whose research focuses on organo-mineral interactions in clays with particular emphasis on highly compacted bentonite. His research will use state-of-the-art analytical techniques to determine the reactivity of natural organic matter in bentonite clays.
Maryam is a research assistant who lends her expertise in analytical and environmental chemistry to various projects within the group. Maryam is also completing her PhD in Environmental Sciences with Prof. A. Simpson.
Meiling is a PhD student in Environmental Sciences. Her research focuses on climate change impacts on soil organic matter biogeochemistry in agricultural ecosystems.
Phoebe is a PhD student in the Environmental Sciences graduate program. Her reserach will focus on the molecular biogeochemistry of soil-derived dissolved organic matter.
Erico is a PhD student in Environmental Science. His research will focus on the environmental metabolomics of Daphnia magna exploiting techniques such as NMR and MS for both non-targeted and targeted analyses
Shannon is a M. Sc. Student in Environmental Chemistry. Her research focuses on the chemistry of natural organic matter in bentonite clay that is being used as an engineered barrier for the long-term storage of used nuclear fuel.
Iuliana is a student in the M. Sc. program in Environmental Chemistry. Her research will study the impacts of soil warming and nitrogen addition to soil organic matter molecular biogeochemistry in forests.
Isla is a M. Sc. student in the Environmental Chemistry program. Her research will examine the long-term impact of changes in litter quality and quantity on the molecular biogeochemistry of soil organic matter in forests.
