PhD Student, Chemistry, University of British Columbia

I am a chemistry PhD student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My research focuses on the physicochemical properties and the reactions of biomass burning aerosols, particles that are emitted from wildfires. I am particularly concerned with their effects on the climate and human health, and with comparing field samples to the proxies that atmospheric chemists typically use in the lab.

Prior to my current work, I did research in several different fields of chemistry; my projects involved inorganic antibacterial compounds, organic liquid crystals, and using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry to support drug development and detection.
