Bio

Robert obtained his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2016, and after spending 2.5 years in industry for high TRL energy storage product development, Robert is now a research officer with the National Research Council of Canada – Mississauga branch. Robert’s experience is as an experimentalist in the areas of energy storage materials, and since joining NRC his research efforts have extended to the areas of electrocatalysis for green-energy conversion, and self-driving laboratories coupled with applied machine learning geared towards experimentation. As a primary driver of NRC Mississauga’s research efforts into the areas of self-driving laboratories, Robert will be working directly with various members to realize consortium-related efforts taking place on-site at NRC Mississauga, while also looking to establish ties within the acceleration consortium for future collaborative opportunities to support Canadian academia/industry in this area.
