Matthew Coady, PhD (2019 - )
Dr. Coady completed a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Western Ontario under the supervision of Prof. Paul Ragogna, were he developed and investigated icephobic coatings in collaboration with 3M Canada. Matthew brought his love of tacos and mexican food to Windsor when he joined the R.-G. group in Summer 2019. His research are currently focusing on the fabrication of mechanically robust organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) and self-healing electronics. He his also utilizing his knowledge in polymer chemistry to develop new semiconducting materials.
Adam Langlois, PhD (2018 - )
Dr. Langlois completed a PhD in Chemistry at the Université de Sherbrooke under the supervision of Prof. Pierre Harvey, were he studied the photophysical properties of various π-conjugated systems. Since Summer 2018, Adam joined the R.-G. group as a NSERC Postdoctoral Scholar, where his research are currently focusing on the development of novel methologies for the preparation of carbon-rich materials and on the synthesis of novel crosslinked π-conjugated materials from polydiacetylenes.
M. Nazir Tahir, PhD (2017 - )
Dr. Tahir completed a PhD in Chemistry at the Institute of Food Chemistry (Institut für Lebensmittelchemie), University of Technology (TU) Braunschweig, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Petra Mischnick. After several research experiences as postdoc, Nazir joined the Rondeau-Gagné research group in Spring 2017. In the group, his research focuses on the development of novel formulation for cannabinoids, in collaboration with the group of Prof. John Trant.
Michael Ocheje, B.Sc. (2016 - )
Michael joined the Rondeau-Gagné research group in Fall 2016 after completing his bachelor degree in chemistry (Honours) at the University of Windsor. During his undergraduate studies, he worked in the laboratory of Prof. James W. Gauld at the University of Windsor. His research focused on the computational analysis of the catalytic mechanism for Lysyl-AMP and hHINT1. In the Rondeau-Gagné group, he is currently focusing his research on the development of novel stretchable and self-healable organic semiconductors by introducing non-covalent bonding moiteties in conjugated polymers.
Adit Nyayachavadi, B.Sc. (2016 - )
Adit joined the Rondeau-Gagné research group in Fall 2016 after completing his bachelor degree in chemistry (Honours) at the University of Windsor. During his undergraduate studies, he worked in the laboratory of Prof. Jichang Wang at the University of Windsor. His research focused on the electrochemical detection of various small organic molecules with L-ascorbic acid modified glassy carbon electrode. In the Rondeau-Gagné group, he is currently focusing his research on polymer crosslinking methodologies by using photo and thermal polymerizations.
Blake St. Onge, B. Sc (2018 - )
Blake joined the Rondeau-Gagné group in Summer 2018 after completing his bachelor degree in chemistry (Honours) at U. Windsor. As an undergraduate researcher, Blake worked on the utilization of pincer Ligands for the complexation of group 13, 14 and 15 main group elements. In the Rondeau-Gagné group, he is currently using the knowledge gained from his undergraduate research to develop new degradable and stretchable conjugated polymers
Gage Mason, B. Sc (2018 - )
Gage joined the Rondeau-Gagné group in Fall 2017 as undergraduate research working on the gelation of electroactive molecules. After successfully completing his degree in chemistry (Honours), Gage decided to take his research to the next level, and began a M.Sc degree in Summer 2018. In the Rondeau-Gagné group, he is currently focusing on the development and design of new eco-friendly and environmentally benign dendronized polymers.
Julia Pignanelli, B. Sc (2018 - )
Julia joined the Rondeau-Gagné group in Summer 2018 after completing her bachelor degree in biological sciences (Honours) at U. Windsor. As an undergraduate researcher, Julia worked at the interface of engineering, chemistry and biological sciences, to develop stretchable pressure sensors for biomedical applications. After completing her project, Julia decided to keep on exploring the interface between chemistry and engineering, and began a M.Sc degree in Chemistry in the R.-G. group, jointed with the group of Prof. Jalal Ahamed in Mechanical and Materials Engineering. She is currently using her multidisciplinary expertise to develop novel self-healing materials and devices
Madison Mooney, B. Sc (2019 - )
Madison joined the Rondeau-Gagné group in Summer 2019 after completing a Honours B.Sc. degree in Chemistry and Anthropology at Trent University. As an undergraduate student, Madison developed a strong set of skills cross-over between organic and green chemistry. Moreover, Madison have been actively involved in chemical education, offering her knowledge of chemical and anthropological research methods, teaching experience, and communication skills to the academic advancement of organic chemistry. In the Rondeau-Gagné group, Madison is currently focusing her research on the development of new, green and eco-friendly semiconductors. She also investigates the use of these new materials for the design of greener, fully printed technologies as part of the NSERC Green Electronic Network
