Bio

Cathleen Crudden is the Allie Vi Douglas Distinguished Research Professor, Queen’s National Scholar and Tier 1 Canada Research Chair at Queen’s University, and holds a cross appointment as a Research Professor at the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM) in Nagoya Japan. She received her PhD in 1994 from the University of Ottawa with Dr. Howard Alper, and completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign with Dr. Scott Denmark before returning to Canada in 1996 as an Assistant Professor at the University of New Brunswick. She moved to Queen’s in 2002 as an Associate Professor before becoming full Professor in 2010. Her work in catalysis and materials has received significant acclaim, and recent work identifying a new class of carbon-based SAMs has been called "game changing" and "the new gold standard" by international experts.
