Chemistry Master's student in the Faculty of Science

I'm a Master's of Chemistry student working in the Leznoff group. I completed my undergraduate degree at Quest University Canada. I enjoy hands on lab work and I'm currently researching the synthesis of pigments and dyes.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I have previously worked with Dr. Leznoff and jumped at the opportunity to rejoin the Leznoff group. The Leznoff group is also a world leader in metallophthalocyanine research and is the perfect place to continue exploring pigment and dye research.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

I use large, ring shaped molecules and modify them with different metals and attachments to create new types of pigments and dyes.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I enjoy the supportive nature of my group members and my PI. We are living and researching in unprecedented conditions and  the people around me could not be more supportive.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR FUNDED AWARDS?

BC Graduate Scholarship.
