BSc (Honours in Chemistry), St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, Nova Scotia
PhD in Chemistry, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta
My research interests primarily lie in the fields of catalysis and green chemistry. My current research focuses on improving the environmental sustainability and efficiency of industrial chemical processes through asymmetric catalyst immobilization and continuous-flow.
Selected Publications and Patents:
I have taught a variety of chemistry courses to date including general chemistry, introductory and advanced inorganic chemistry, introductory and advanced organic chemistry and organic spectroscopy.
The courses that I currently teach are:
June 2017: A big welcome to international intern Banruo (Francis) Li! Francis will be working with Marina on catalytic MOF synthesis over the summer months
May 2017: A big welcome to international intern Marina Schmidt-Thome! Marina will be working on catalytic MOF synthesis over the summer months.
