Research in environmental catalysis
Current research and/or projects
I joined NRCan CanmetENERGY - Ottawa in 2008 as a research chemist working on catalytic membrane reactors for different industrial processes. Since 2011, I am a member of the Catalytic Conversion Team which is focused on catalysis for pollution control. In 2014, my position was reclassified to research scientist.
Research and/or project statements
