Yu Ri Park - Staff

Name: Yu Ri Park

Hometown: South Korea  

Degrees held: PhD, titled “Synthesis, characterization and application of organic surfactants modified clays for water purification”

Research interests:

·      Development of new environmental protection materials such as clay mineral and modified clays for the removal of organic contaminants in aqueous media

·      Clay minerals characterization techniques

·      Environmental water quality analysis techniques

 

About me:

Originally, I am from South Korea and I obtained my PhD in Australia in 2013. I came to Halifax to do my post-doc at Dalhousie University and staying in Halifax has been so far great and wonderful.
