Dr. Ewa Dabek-Zlotorzynska, FCIC

Senior Research Scientist - Head, Particulate Characterization, Analysis and Air Quality Section

CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Contributing to Environment Canada's initiatives to protect the health of Canadians and the environment from the harmful effects of air pollutants or other harmful or dangerous substances.

  • Develop information on levels and sources of atmospheric aerosols across Canada under the Clean Air Regulatory Agenda (CARA)
  • Research on polar carbonaceous aerosols to better understand emissions and atmospheric processes under the Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD)
  • Research on emerging metallic contaminants in atmospheric aerosols and other environmental matrices under the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP)
  • Development of innovative analytical methods (IC, CE-DAD/LIF/MS, LC-DAD/MS, ICP-MS, etc.) to determining priority and new contaminants in ambient air and vehicle emissions, and other environmental matrices
  • Provide leadership and management of analytical chemistry laboratories for the National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) network and other programs
