I am currently doing my PhD research in the Department of Chemistry at Queen’s University, but I am originally from British Columbia. Domestically committed to my research in analytical chemistry, I enjoy long walks on the beach and late nights in the lab. When I’m not pouring over excel spreadsheets (and softly crying) I can be found playing the trumpet in the Queen’s University Chamber Orchestra, living it up at club Stauff (where all the data analysis happens!), singing in the Queen’s Choral Ensemble, or trying to make chemistry puns on Facebook. My research is focused on toxic element analysis in soils, so I’m not afraid to get down and dirty! I have been in the Beauchemin lab for almost 3 years, and I always appreciate a good chemistry meme in my inbox.
My most recent project is in Developing the continious on-line leaching method for use in bioaccessibilty risk assessments of contaminated soils with inductively coupled plasma mass spectometry, which I will be presenting during The 63rd International Conference on Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy in Montreal, Quebec.
