I completed my Bachelor’s in chemistry at Trent University. Currently, I am a M.Sc candidate in Chemistry at Dalhousie University. My graduate research is under the supervision of Dr. Dahn. I focus on tracking the chemical changes of Li-ion cell electrolytes over long-term cycling. The goal is to understand the chemical mechanisms occurring so that possible routes of cell failures can be identified and resolved. My hope is to produce Li-ion cell chemistries that will allow batteries to cycle for as long as possible, be cheaper and be more energy dense.
I am also an active member of the Green Chemistry Initiative at Dalhousie and Dalhousie Toastmasters. In addition, I am the VP of external of the chemistry graduate student society at Dalhousie University. In my spare time I love to stay active through sport and travel.
