Ian Vander Meulen
I did my undergraduate training in Chemistry with a minor in Philosophy at the King’s University in Edmonton, graduating spring 2015.. I am currently pursuing an M.Sc. in Lab Medicine and Pathology specializing in Analytical Environmental Toxicology at the University of Alberta under Dr. Xing-Fang Li. My work will focus on the disinfection by-product formation potential of some ionic liquids, as they have been identified as potentially problematic water contaminants. By measuring the disinfection by-product formation potential of some ionic liquids, this can start to help quantify the risk ionic liquids could pose to human populations should ILs ever contaminate source water.
