Dr. Nadine Borduas-Dedekind 🇨🇦

Nadine is an atmospheric organic chemist interested in chemical mechanisms in the gas phase and in the aerosol phase. She has a BSc from the Université de Sherbrooke, and an MSc from the University of Toronto in organic chemistry with experience working in pharmaceutical industries in Canada and in Germany. She then obtained a PhD in atmospheric chemistry from the University of Toronto in 2015, working on the atmospheric fate of organo-nitrogen pollutants. After working at an air quality consulting company in South Africa, she moved to Switzerland to pursue an NSERC PDF at ETH Zurich studying the role of photochemistry on aerosol-cloud interactions. In 2018, she started her independent career at ETH Zurich funded by an Ambizione grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation hosted in the environmental chemistry and atmospheric physics groups. In January 2021, Nadine moved her group to UBC where she is now an assistant professor. Ongoing research interests in the NBD Group include atmospheric chemical mechanisms of pollutants and smells found indoors and outdoors, as well as biogeochemistry of selenium and the mechanism of atmospheric ice nucleation. The overarching goal is to quantify lifetimes and mechanisms to predict the fate of large organic molecules in our atmosphere. Nadine is also an aspiring science communicator and an avid alpine skier.
