BSc. Honours in Chemistry, University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), 2012

Alexander Graham Bell CGS-D Recipient (May 2014)

Born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island on July 18, 1990.
Honours at UPEI under the supervision of Dr. Brian Wagner studying the
association constants of high purity modified cyclodextrins with 2,6-ANS
employing steady-state fluorescence techniques.

Current research interests lie in understanding the role and participation
of amine derived radicals in photoredox catalysis, and using this
knowledge to improve the kinetics of current catalytic systems and also to
develop transition metal-free alternatives to compete with current Ru(II)
systems.
