Dr. Jonathan (Jon) Veinot is Professor and Associate Chair (Research) in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Alberta. He also serves as an Associate Editor for the Royal Society of Chemistry journals Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances. His research team has explored such topics as super-hydrophobic/self-cleaning surfaces, metal oxide nanomaterials and polymers for organic electronic devices, however their primary focus lies in the development of Group 14 (i.e., Si and Ge) nanomaterials (e.g., quantum dots, nanosheets, etc.) and their applications (e.g., bio/medical imaging, batteries, display technologies, solar cells, etc.). For his efforts he was awarded the 2017 Award for Excellence in Materials Chemistry from the Chemical Society of Canada (Materials Chemistry Division) and the 2016 DICHEM Award from the Burghausen Chemical Industry and City of Burghausen, Bavaria. Jon has also built strong professional and personal ties with colleagues in Germany, particularly at the Technical University of Munich where he was a Visiting Research Professor in 2012 and is now a TUM Research Ambassador. He established and is the Canadian Director of the “Alberta-Technical University of Munich International Graduate for Hybrid Functional Materials (ATUMS)” that is supported by the NSERC CREATE and DFG IRTG programs as well as Alberta Innovates. He is also President/co-Founder/CTO of Applied Quantum Materials Inc.; a start-up venture that aims to commercialize intellectual property developed in his academic labs and provides employment opportunities for highly qualified personnel from the University of Alberta and surrounding academic institutions.
