Selected undergraduates

Maxi Steinmetz.jpg

Maxi Steinmetz

BSc (Nutritional Sciences), Justus Liebig University Giessen

2019. Maxi received an undergraduate summer exchange opportunity through the MITACS  internship program. She researched the effect of pain-relieving drugs on altering omega-6 fatty acid metabolism.  


Aleen Awais

BSc (Health Science), Carleton University

2018-2020. Aleen participated in summer research and was a recipient of I-CUREUS awards. She helped with the maintenance of C. elegans, our model for studying toxicant mechanisms of action.

Erin Lange_honours_edited.jpg

Erin Lange

BScH (Chemistry), Carleton University

2018-2021. Erin did her Honours project and spent several summers with us, working to develop analytical and biochemical methods to measure fluorinated pollutants and their biological targets. 

Sean Hargrave.jpg

Sean Hargrave

BScH (Chemistry), Carleton University

2019. Sean synthesized 8 metabolites of fluorinated pollutants to serve as analytical standards and toxicant substrates in future projects.

Kali Deecker_edited.jpg

Kali Deecker

BScH (Chemistry), Carleton University

2019-2020. Kali used computer modeling and LC-MS/MS to examine the metabolism of omega-6 fatty acids and how this can be modulated in the presence of aspirin.
