Reuben Hudson (bottom right on the photo) is currnetly a post doctoral fellow at Colby University in Maine, in the group of Jeffrey Katz, where he studies the synthesis of polymers. He secured this summer a large research grant on Green Chemistry with reknown green chemists Sankaran Thayumanavan from UMass-Amherst, Eric Beckman from University of Pittsburgh, and John Warner of the Warner-Babcock Institute, from the Science, Education, and Engineering for Sustainability (SEES) program of the National Science Foundation.
On Oct 9, the Ariya group made a nice surprise to their supervisor. The entire lab baked, decorated, transported and setup over 100 cupcakes to create a periodic table. The colours of the icing were characteristic of whether the element was part of the s block, d block, p blocks or f blocks and the non-metals were also frosted and of the five flavours of cupcakes: butter pecan, double fudge chocolate, red velvet, carrot cake and vanilla were characteristic of the various blocks of the periodic table. Due to lack of time, a few elements were missing, but who wants inert cupcakes anyways!
The new Chair was announced at McGill today by Senator Larry Smith, on behalf of the Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology).
