Our research group studies electron transfer reactions using classical electrochemical methods and scanning-probe electrochemical microscopy. We use these methods to study corrosion of copper and various steel and aluminium alloys. We help various industrial partners such as Hydro Quebec to predict the corrosion behaviour of their materials and work on methods for corrosion inhibition.
A second active area in our group is the development of chemical and bio-sensors. This includes microscale pH sensors for scanning-probe measurements as well as bio-sensors for amino acids present in the brain such as D-serine.
Our projects lie at the interface between biological chemistry, analytical chemistry and materials science. They provide students with extensive training in electrochemistry, microscopy, nanoelectrode design, biochemistry, numerical simulations, electrosynthesis, Li-ion batteries and analytical method development.
