Dr. Richard Oleschuk obtained his B.Sc.H. (1994) and Ph.D. (1998) from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Manitoba. His doctoral studies with Arthur Chow involved researching both polymer based extraction methods for metal complexes and membrane based sample preparation methods for mass spectrometry. In 1998, Richard was awarded a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postdoctoral Fellowship, which he tenured in D. Jed Harrison’s laboratory at the University of Alberta. His postdoctoral work involved developing miniaturized analysis devices, incorporating solid phase extraction and electro-chromatography into lab-on-a-chip devices. Richard is interested in the area of microfluidics, specifically focusing on microfluidic devices constructed from different polymer materials and integrating these devices with mass spectrometry.
