RSO / Laboratory Manager
Patrick Dwyer is a graduate from the University of Calgary Department of Chemistry. His undergraduate honors project and master’s studies focused on synthesizing novel inorganic-organic materials for gas capture and separation.
He has co-authored a scientific paper with his research group which spurred further investigation into a promising set of materials. During his studies, he has presented at Canadian Society of Chemistry (CSC) and Carbon Capture Initiative (CCI) conferences with his work.
He has also worked as a research consultant for a technology startup developing, characterizing, and deploying nanomaterial biomarkers. His interests in lab are formulating organic tracers as well as working with and enhancing the isotope technologies that have been developed by our company. He will be investigating novel tracer materials while running and managing the laboratory.
When Patrick is outside the lab, he enjoys spending his time in the mountains climbing and skiing. He has been volunteering at the Calgary Folk Music Festival for the last eight years and has been a coordinator for the past three.
