"Dr. Buriak has a strong understanding of university research and the sciences that will benefit the Council," said Minister Bernier. "Her knowledge and experience will provide valuable contributions to NSERC as they continue to promote and support research in universities, government and the private sector."
Dr. Jillian Buriak is currently Professor of Chemistry and holds a Canada Research Chair position in Inorganic and Nanoscale Materials with the University of Alberta. She is also the Senior Research Officer and Group Leader with the National Institute for Nanotechnology. Previously, Dr. Buriak was Associate Professor of Chemistry at Purdue University.
