Highly motivated individuals interested in pursuing graduate studies at the Master and doctoral levels are sought. Funding to carry out thesis work on various topics in photochemistry, organic photocatalyst synthesis, water purification, catalysis and mechanistic investigations is currently available. Visit the Research page for more information. At present our group emphasizes topics related to the preparation of carbon nitride, mechanism of photocatalysis, and kinetics. Individuals from any background are encouraged to apply, with chemistry, physics or chemical engineering having the most potential for overlap of interests.
Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact Dr. Godin for more information. Please indicate in your email:
