About Us

The research team at Memorial University consists of amazing researchers from all walks of life. The focus is primarily on training highly-qualified personel such that they can contribute as part of the highly skilled labour force in Newfoundland, Canada, or wherever they choose to make their home.

Our youngest team members consist of high-school students from around the province engaging in the Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) program at Memorial University. Every year, a group of amazing women from around the province have an opportunity to come to St. John's and experience what university research is all about.

Our team continues on with the most enthusiastic undergraduate students around. Ranging from Natural Science and Engineering Research of Canada Undergraduate Student Research Award (NSERC-USRA) reserachers over the summer to students persuing their Honours degree in Chemistry over the fall and winter semester.

The graduate students in the group are the "long-term" researchers focusing on taking Dr. Katz's ideas and expanding on them into an integral part of the research program. Our graduate students come from all over the world bringing with them a broad range of research experience and local cuisine for group potlucks

We have been further fortunate to have several interns in the lab (notably from France) visiting and trying their hands at making some new porous materials.

Regardless of how they end up in the lab, it's great to see these students develop both their projects and their critical thinking skills.
