Keroles Riad

Banting postdoctoral fellow, Concordia University

Dr. Keroles B. Riad is a Banting postdoctoral fellow at Carleton University. He is also a valedictorian and former Public Scholar at Concordia University where he received a Ph.D. degree from the individualized program developing new materials for 3D printing. He is the CEO of O Nanotech Solutions, a startup that provides flame-made metal oxide quantum dots at scale for a few hundred dollars a gram- an order of magnitude cheaper than the market. He is also the CEO of enuf, a spin-off B-corp of the “Waste Not, Want Not” student initiative he started at Concordia University for which he received the Quebec Lieutenant-Governor Youth Medal. Since the beginning of “Waste Not, Want Not” in 2016, the Concordia community doubled their annual composting, and each Concordian reduced their annual overall waste by 16%.
