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!
Courtney is the 2017 recipient of the Chemical Institute of Canada Analytical Chemistry Undergraduate Student Travel Award! This award will fund Courtney’s travel to the 100th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition in Toronto to present her research. Congratulations!
Heidi and Joseph travelled to Orlando, Florida last week to attend the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) annual North America meeting (and, incidentally, experience the US election firsthand). Heidi gave a presentation on her PFAA ice core work, while Joseph presented a poster on his PBDEs in size-resolved atmospheric particles.
During the week of September 21, the group was very busy! Rob, John, Heidi, and Cora attended the 11th Annual Workshop on LC-MS-MS Applications in Environmental Analysis and Food Safety. The event was hosted by Environment Canada in Burlington, ON. Rob presented a new analytical method for amino sugars analysis and was awarded the first […]
Cora attended the Gordon Research Conference focusing on atmospheric chemistry held in Waterville Valley, NH last week. She presented Rob’s biomass burning brown carbon analysis.
John won a poster prize at the recent Fluoros meeting in Golden, CO for his excellent presentation on a gas-phase perfluoroalkyl acid source. Great work!
John and Cora travelled to Golden, CO to attend the second Fluoros International Symposium. They presented their work on the analysis and long-range transport of perfluoroalkyl acids and met with perfluoros experts from around the world.
Cora and CJY Group alumna Rachel Hems were in Canada’s capital this past week at the CSC’s annual conference. Rachel presented the amino sugars analysis project that she initiated while in the group last summer and Cora presented Rob’s brown carbon analysis.
Rob and Cora travelled to sunny Colorado to attend the spring meeting of the American Chemical Society. Rob gave a presentation about his work looking at the absorbing species in biomass burning aerosols, while Cora presented John’s method development work for detecting perfluorinated acids in particles.
Cora and Kat travelled to Vancouver to attend the annual North American meeting of the Society of Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology. Kat and Cora presented work on analytical method development for the detection of persistent pollutants in atmospheric samples.
