Congratulations to Galen for being accepted into graduate studies at McGill! His passion for green chemistry and sustainability is everything we like to see in young scientists.

Katie was scooped up by Environment and Climate Change Canada in Ottawa to start a new job as a policy engineer, and they are lucky to have her! Josh also secured a great job in Ottawa in the Sales Leadership Development Program with Fritolay, so we’ll have a group reunion in the Ottawa area sometime in the future!

Undergrad thesis presentations

What a weird way to end the semester! Congratulations to Josh and Katie who pulled through with fantastic virtual presentations of their thesis work.
