The Speed lab is a young research group at Dalhousie University, engaged in the discovery of simple, robust and inexpensive catalysts to simplify chemical manufacturing. We aim to discover new reactivity mediated by soluble main group compounds that lessens the environmental burden of fine chemical production, while providing a high quality chemical education.

Prospective Students:
If you are interested in working in the Speed group, please contact Dr. Speed by e-mail. Undergraduate research opportunities may currently be limited due to restrictions of the number of people working in the lab in light of the current COVID-19 situation. I do not currently have unrestricted funding allocated to graduate student recruitment, accordingly applicants who are interested in graduate studies will need to explore external funding options such as NSERC and Nova Scotia Graduate Scholarships.  Please note I do not currently have funding for a post-doctoral position (inquiries from post-doctoral candidates with their own funding are welcome). Due to the high volume of of unsolicited post-doctoral applications I recieve, I am unable to reply to all e-mails regarding potential post-doctoral positions.
