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.
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!
Cora was in Toronto last week to give invited seminars at the University of Toronto and Environment and Climate Change Canada. She spoke about Rob’s brown carbon work and Rob even attended one seminar in the flesh!
Heidi competed in the 3 minute thesis competition in the Faculty of Science last week. She did a great job of explaining her research to a general audience. She was awarded second prize for her presentation! Congratulations!
Earlier this week, Cora travelled to MIT in Boston. She presented the group’s work on long-range transport of contaminants, focusing on John and Heidi’s collaborative work with Environment and Climate Change Canada.
Cora was in Gent, Belgium last week to participate in the Interaction Between Indoor and Atmospheric Chemistry Workshop and attend the Indoor Air 2016 meeting. She presented Kat’s work on PBDEs in size-resolved particles indoors.
Last week was a busy one for the group! Joseph and Kathryn travelled to Mount St Vincent University for this year’s Science Atlantic ChemCon meeting. A couple days later, most of the rest of the group (including Kat!) joined them in Halifax for the 99th Canadian Society of Chemistry meeting. After a week of excellent […]
Joseph travelled to Toronto last week to participate in the Brominated Flame Retardants 2016 meeting held at the University of Toronto. Joseph presented his analytical method development for new BFR-related compounds, as well as his detection of these compounds in the environment.
Rob’s work on brown carbon collected from an aged boreal biomass burning plume has been published in Geophysical Research Letters . We collected samples of the plume from a fire burning in northern Quebec and Labrador as it came over St. John’s in summer of 2013 (satellite photo). Rob used size-exclusion chromatography coupled to UV-vis […]
Cora was in Vancouver last week to attend the Northern Contaminants Program Results Workshop and the ArcticNET Annual Scientific Meeting. She presented John and Heidi’s work on long-range transport of perfluoroalkyl acids.
