Thesis Title:

Residential Sampling for Lead and Corrosion Inhibition by Phosphate

Thesis and Research Interests:

I was born in Vancouver, BC, but I like to think of myself as a native ‘Maritimer’. I like big trees (I know, wrong coast), playing classical and fingerstyle guitar, hiking, and cycling.
