science outreach, PhD Candidate, and Imaging Mass Spectrometry in Montreal, Québec, Canada
Ethan is currently a PhD candidate at the Université de Montréal in imaging mass spectrometry (IMS), a field in analytical chemistry. He focuses on developing methods for MALDI-TOF IMS so that this highly advanced method can be applied on better understanding cancers and other age-related diseases. He works under Prof. Pierre Chaurand, one of the first to describe IMS.
In his spare time, he organizes special events and semi-rural trips for the Let's Talk Science at McGill University, an organization that he has volunteered for since 2011! He is passionate about science education and science outreach, and aims to improve science literacy, as well as inspire future generations to continue their studies in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
