Alexandra Burnett

Alex is currently working towards her M.Sc. in Environmental/Analytical Chemistry. She grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and completed her undergraduate degree in honours chemistry at the University of Manitoba. During the course of her undergraduate degree, Alex worked as a student researcher in Dr. Gregg Tomy’s group and worked on several projects over the summer involving Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs). She also completed an honours project, which involved working to develop an LC-MS/MS method that quantified antibiotics in order to study the effect of adjuvants on antibiotic resistant bacteria. Alex is thrilled to be starting her master’s degree and is excited to be a part of the Styler group. Currently, she is working on quantifying hydroxyl radicals produced by dust using a molecular probe.
