Dr. Trevor VandenBoer is currently a Visiting Professor and Adjunct Faculty member of the Department of Chemistry at York University investigating reactive nitrogen atmospheric chemistry with the Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratory and is funded by the Alfred P Sloan Foundation to develop new analytical techniques for measuring reactive nitrogen as part of the Chemistry of the Indoor Environment program.
He completed a combined Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Analytical Chemistry and Forensic Science from Laurentian University in 2007. He has subsequently completed an MSc (2008) and PhD (2012) in Environmental and Atmospheric Chemistry with Dr. Jennifer Murphy from the University of Toronto. He held a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship with Dr. Susan Ziegler at Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Trevor’s ongoing research examines the biogeochemical interactions of nitrogen between the biosphere and the atmosphere. Trevor has previously received funding from the Harris Centre at Memorial University, the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Forestry & Agrifoods Centre for Forestry Science and Innovation, and the Canadian Forestry Service.
