Dr. Mitchell usually teaches:
Haiyong (Planck) Huang, PhD Candidate
Planck began his Ph.D. research in September 2017 and is investigating molecular interactions between dissolved organic matter, sulphur and mercury to better understand when and where mercury becomes more bioavailable to microbes who produce methylmercury.
Wai Ying Lam, PhD Candidate
Wai began her PhD in September 2019. She is studying the hydrology of northwestern Ontario boreal watersheds as well as how physiography and forest harvesting impact mercury export from these watersheds. She is also interested in the biogeochemical implications related to beaver activity in disturbed watersheds.
Sayuri Sagisaka, PhD Student
Sayuri began her PhD in September 2020. She is conducting a series of lab-scale experiments to broaden our understanding of how forestry practices and climate change impact mercury cycling processes including methylation, demethylation, and gaseous mercury exchange between soils and air.
