Dr. Sanil Rajak obtained his B.Sc. Chemistry degree from the University of Mumbai, India, in 2011 and his M.Sc. Chemistry from Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India in 2013. He worked as a professional researcher at BASF-The Chemical Company for one year before joining the Institut de recherche sur l’hydrogène of the University du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres, Canada, to pursue the Ph.D study in Science of Energy and Materials. His dissertation topic “Design and Development of Diaminotriazine based Molecular Catalyst for Light-Driven Hydrogen Production”. He has joined the Nguyen-Tri research lab group as a post-doctoral researcher from Feburary 2021 to May 2021. His work focused on “Heterogeneous Molecular Catalysts for Artificial Photosynthesis”.


Phillip Subranni
B.Sc Student

Phillip Subranni is currently an undergraduate in physics at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR). He joined Nguyen-Tri Lab from May 1 to August 26, 2021 for his internship, whose main objective is to recycle used protective masks from UQTR in order to transform them into graphene. In particular, the study consists of synthesizing graphene using a chemical vapor deposition method, using used masks within the UQTR as raw material.

Mohamed Anouar Belhaj
B.Sc Student

Mohamed Anouar Belhaj obtained his first bachelor degree in microbiology immunology from Université de Montréal in 2013. He worked as a researcher for 18 months in a Microbiology Research Lab in Université de Montréal, with research interest on microalgae for the production of biodiesel. He obtained his second bachelor degree in medical biology in 2020 from Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, where he got two scholarships (BRPC) for the summer 2018 and summer 2019. His research interests was on bioremediation of contaminated soil, working on extractable polyphenols in cosmetics applications. He joined Nguyen-Tri Lab from January 2021 to June 2021 for his  internship research focusing on developement of advanced methods to measure antimicrobial activity of textiles.
