Doctoral (2016-2021), Ontario Tech University

Developed electrochromic materials using metal coordination complexes on inorganic and conductive surface enhanced supports.As a materials scientist, I apply a lot of characterization techniques. For example, I am skilled in:

  • Electrochemical Methods: cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)chronoamperometry, diffuse-reflectance spectroscopy

  • Surface Methods: Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), ellipsometry, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller analysis (BET)

  • Deposition Techniques: screen-printing, spin-coating, layer-by-layer

  • Glovebox use

Research Exchange (2017), Cardiff University, UK

​Sponsored by the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee program and under the supervision of Dr. Simon Pope, performed inorganic synthesis of novel fluorescent ligands to be used for fluorescence microscopy and biological imaging. Required techniques:

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy

  • Mass Spectroscopy (MS)

  • Infrared Spectroscopy (IR)

Undergraduate (2014-2015), Ontario Tech University

Synthesized a novel ligand, then explored its capabilities as a metal ion sensor in solution and on solid surface supports including exposure to nanoparticle preparation. Some techniques I used regularly for this project were:

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy

  • Infrared Spectroscopy (IR)

  • UV-Visible (UV-Vis) Spectroscopy

  • Fluorescence Spectroscopy
