Lessard Research Group - Next Generation Materials for Next Generation Applications
Nirmal B. Kannan (M.A.Sc. student)
As a young boy, Nirmal played Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory. Now, he gets to do it for real except without needing to worry about Mandark...for now...
Ben King (Undergrad)
When Ben isn't found in the lab enjoying the smell of Acetone, he can be found listening to jazz music and making terrible puns. His favourite apparatus is the NMR machine; something about it seems to resonate with him.
Samantha Stanzel (Undergrad)
After realizing that she wasn’t good enough to become a pro Ultimate Frisbee player, Sam turned to Chemical Engineering. In her free time she enjoys making bad chemistry puns, only periodically though.
Zoe Pierce (Undergrad)
Apart from day dreaming about moving to Hawaii, Zoe likes to spend her time eating copious amounts of cereal and training for her next half marathon by sitting on the couch watching Netflix.
Christian J. Imperiale (Undergrad)
If there's three things Christian knows, they're science, music and food. Biotechnology undergraduate at the university of Ottawa with interests in biochemistry, chemical engineering and medicinal chemistry (LinkedIn)
Nada Khalil (Undergrad)
If she's not travelling across the globe, Nada can be found at UOttawa studying Biotechnology. Nada's passion for science is only rivalled by her passion for sleep and food.
Georgio Feghali (Undergrad)
Making a bad chemistry joke cause all the good ones Argon.
Omar Idrissi (Undergrad)
Omar never thought investigating reaction kinetics meant breaking a sweat, but when the NMR is half way across campus... running an NMR literally means running to the NMR
Tori McIntyre (Undergrad)
Tori enjoys competing nationally in track & field, when she gets bored of running in circles she charges things up with cooking, hiking and even a bit of chemistry too.
Master of red columns. Visiting from China and here thanks to Mitacs.
Virginna (Vivi) Kusuma (Undergrad)
Vivi aspires to someday utilize her Chemistry skills to formulate the ultimate, perfect hair dye. She enjoys sudoku, does not like cats, and genuinely loves durian (it’s one of her favorite fruits!)
Devina Patel (Undergrad)
Daniela Mare (Undergrad)
After spending a year abroad, Daniela has developed an interest in applying her chemical engineering background to many different applications. If you don’t find her in the lab or somewhere on campus, she is likely at home cooking up a storm or jetting off on a new adventure.
Zaker Mehrez (Undergrad)
An aspiring engineer with a love for travel and poetry. Roses are red, where's Captain Kirk, why won't this distillation work...
Ian Therrien (Undergrad)
Ian’s love, and what some consider an addiction, for coffee often gets in the way of his work in the lab. If he’s not found brewing coffee beside his reactions, he’s most likely trying to regain control of his shaky hands.
Vinicius Rossi (Undergrad)
Phillip Williams (Undergrad)
With his undergrad in Mad engineering on track, Phil hopes to combine his passion for programming, organic electronics and self replicating killer robots.
