Meet the team

Victor Quezada_edited.jpg

Quezada Novoa

President - Victor is a PhD student at  Concordia  in the field of rare-earth based Metal-Organic Frameworks and their  application in photocatalysis. He loves dogs, the gym, cooking and video games. 


Tristan Perodeau

Vice-president - Tristan is starting his master's degree at UdeM in electrochemistry. He studies the polymer-ceramic interface in storage systems. Tristan is a proud Innu member of the First Nations of Mashteuiatsh, Quebec. Outside the lab, you can find him hiking or camping while enjoying a local Quebec beer! 




Member - Yasmine is a Ph.D. student at UdeM in energy storage. She uses DFT and solid-state chemistry to explore the interface between  electrodes and solid electrolytes in lithium batteries. She can take you out dancing salsa or boxing anytime.




Member - Arnaud is a Ph.D. student at UdeM in polymer sciences. He is interested in the influence of molecular order on the optical and mechanical properties of polymeric and composite materials. Arnaud enjoys listening to house music, reading classic novels, and cooking comfort food. 


Mostafa Shagar

Member - Mostafa is a Ph.D. student at INRS. He is interested in the light-matter interactions in  organic and inorganic semiconductors. In his free time, he enjoys cooking,  stand up comedy and finding the best coffee spots in town.




Member - Chenghao is a Ph.D. student at McGill  in organic electronics. He focuses on exploring the properties of organic pi-functional materials at different scales by employing artificial intelligence and 2D polymerization. He lives off on hiking, photography, and board games in his free time.  


Tao (Tom)


Member - Tom is a Ph.D. student at UQAM in semi-conductor materials for applications in solar cells and photocatalysis. He  likes playings sports,

animals, and good food.


Zongyi Liu

Member - Zongyi is a Ph.D. student at ULaval, her research project is to expand the time window of the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model, by using 3D bioprinting to implant voluminous cancer cell-containing hydrogels that are closer to the expected volumes for drug screening and radiotherapy assessments. Besides study, I really enjoy photography and café shop hunting.


Salek Esfahan

Member - Samaneh is a doctoral student at UQAM and works on the electrochemical oxidation of metals and metal oxides using scanning electrochemical microscopy. In her free time, she enjoys traveling around the world and listening to baroque music.




Member - Xiaomeng is a Ph.D. student at UdeM  in nano technologies, designing biosensors. She uses DNA and peptides to enable biosensors to detect clinically relevant antibodies. She is fond of hiking and traveling.



Member- Ilknur is a PhD student at INRS in the field of semiconductor polymer materials  and supramolecular interactions. It targets an application  en  thermoelectricity. She is a lover of nature and colors. She is especially passionate about watercolor painting.
