Here are the people making LPCM a success
Bio My first contact with the laboratory was during an internship in 2013. At this time, I began to work in simulating amorphous polymer systems. When I was seeking for a graduate pathway, after getting my BSc in chemistry at the Université de Sherbrooke, LPCM’s atmosphere and philosophy were important factors in my choice. My master’s thesis is about “Dynamics of water states in perfluorinated polymers”. My constant hard work during my first and second cycle studies allowed me to be earned the Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship. My current research interest are in the simulation of amorphous polymers, biologic and nanometric systems.
Bio In co-direction with Patrick Ayotte, professor in the chemistry department, my research project concerns the conversion of nuclear spin isomers of water when it is confined to rare gas matrices. This type of system is of interest to the community astrophysics since it reproduces the conditions of temperature and concentrations found in the interstellar medium. The project is split into two main parts. The first is the study, by atomistic simulation, of the effects of confinement on the dynamics of molecule. The second part concerns a quantum chemistry model, previously validated using simulations, to better understand the possible mechanisms of conversion of spin isomers of water.
