Department of Chemistry



A Doucette Alan A. Doucette, Professor, Director of TARC
Research interests: developing new technologies and methodologies for the characterization of biological molecules using mass spectrometry, interfacing new front-end technologies to mass spectrometry.

H Andreas Heather Andreas, Professor
Research interests: the application of electrochemical methods to the study of alternate methods of energy storage and production, in particular the use of supercapacitors.

R Chisholm Rory Chisholm, Instructor
Research interests: application of surface science for characterization and device development. Teaching interests: introducing undergraduate students to realistic quantitative analysis and analytical instrumentation.

M Freund Michael Freund, Professor
Research interests: chemical sensing and machine olfaction using electrochemical methods and conducting polymer based sensors.

P Wentzell Peter D. Wentzell, Professor
Research interests: chemometrics - the efficient extraction of information from chemical measurements and application to environmental, biological, forensic, and clinical chemistry.


A Chatt Amares Chatt, Professor
Research interests: the application of radiochemical analysis and other techniques to probems in the areas of nuclear, bioanalytical, and environmental chemistry and radioactive waste management.

JS Grossert J. Stuart Grossert, Professor
Research interests: fragmentation pathways for nitrogen- and sulfur-containing ions in the gas phase, developing analytical methods for such ions involving mass spectrometry.

L Ramaley Louis Ramaley, Professor
Research interests: application of mass spectrometry and allied technologies to the separation, identification, and quantification of compounds in complex samples, development of novel analytical instruments.


D Pinto Devanand M. Pinto, Adjunct Professor, National Research Council of Canada
Research interests: development and application of bioanalytical techniques, e.g. chromatography, mass spectrometry, and bioinformatics, to problems in biology, especially pathogenesis.
