Cora attended and presented at the Canada-China Forum on Smog and Haze: From Science to Solutions last week. The event was hosted by the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research at the University of Toronto and featured prominent air quality scientists from Canada and China.
Cora and Trevor travelled to Syracuse, NY this week to work on a collaborative project with the brilliant and lovely Tara Kahan. Cora also gave a talk and was treated to a tour of the Syracuse University campus.
Group members presented at the annual symposium hosted by the NSERC CREATE Training Program for Integrating Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics from Earth to Space (IACPES) in Toronto this week. Cora was the Plenary Speaker, and presentations on CJY Group research were given by Heidi and Joseph. We also took the opportunity to have a group […]
The group will soon have new optical instruments that can be used to understand the atmospheric reactive chlorine budget! Cora received a Research, Tools, and Infrastructure (RTI) grant from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada. See the full NSERC RTI funding announcement for 2017 here.
Our recent paper in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts on the transport of perfluoroalkyl acids to the Arctic has been named as a “HOT article” of 2017! See the list of hot articles here.
In early July, Cora and Trevor travelled to Lublin, Poland to attend Healthy Buildings Europe 2017. Cora was the organizer of sessions sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Trevor presented an application of Bryan’s amine sampling method to indoor environments.
As of July 1, 2017, the CJY group will be relocating to Toronto, ON, where Cora will take up the Guy Warwick Rogers Chair in Chemistry at York University. The Department of Chemistry at York University has a long history of atmospheric chemistry research. We are looking forward to working with our new colleagues, but […]
Some of the group travelled to Toronto last week for the 100th CSC conference. Cora presented Rob’s ultra-high resolution mass spectral analysis of biomass burning aerosol and Heidi’s analysis of deposition of perfluorocarboxylic acids to the Canadian Arctic. Trevor also presented work from the group: Bryan’s nitric acid measurements from the NL-BELT and Rob and […]
Congratulations to Heidi for spearheading St. John’s first participation in Pint of Science last week! You can hear her talking on the local radio about the program here (and being grilled about her knowledge of 80s pop). She has been very busy–this event came right on the heels of her participation in Science Outside the […]
Memorial University hosted the annual Science Atlantic ChemCon conference last week. Representation from current and former CJY group members was strong with presentations by Heidi, Kathryn, Teles, Melanie, Victoria, Courtney, and Archita. Heidi, Victoria, and Archita. Special congratulations to Heidi, Victoria, and Archita for receiving presentation awards!
