Janine Mauzeroll, PhD
Professor of Chemistry
Department of Chemistry
Born in Buckingham, Quebec, Janine Mauzeroll completed a B.Sc.(‘99) in Chemistry at McGill University, followed by a Ph.D. (‘04) in Electrochemistry at the premier laboratory of Allen J. Bard at the University of Texas Austin. Following this, Mauzeroll undertook a post-doctoral fellow position at l’Université de Paris 7 in the theoretical electrochemistry group of Jean-Micheal Savéant.
Mauzeroll (NSERC-UFA award, Fred Beamish Award CSC) is a Full Professor of Chemistry and an Associate Member of the Mining and Materials Engineering Department at McGill. JM is an electrochemist. She develops new in-situ instruments, experimental and numerical methodologies for characterizing a broad range of materials, employing classical electrochemistry and scanning probe microscopy. Her work consistently combines experimental and theoretical electrochemical methods applied to pressing biomedical and industrial problems such as multidrug resistance in human cancer cells and corrosion in magnesium containing automobiles.
She is the Technical Editor of the Organic and Bioelectrochemistry Section of the Journal of Electrochemical Society. She was also the Chair of the 2020 Gordon Electrochemistry conference. She has managed and participated in several large industrial NSERC Strategic, CRD and APC grants. She has published over 50 papers (among them The Journal of the American Chemical Society, The Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (2013, 2004), Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Reviews, 3 patents (PCT stage) and 4 book chapters. She has given 50 invited talks. Since 2010, JM has trained more than 50 students and postdoctoral fellow in chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, numerical simulations and engineering.
