Welcome Dr. Hungler!

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Paul Hungler as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering. Dr. Hungler recently retired from the Canadian Armed Forces after serving 20 years in the Royal Canadian Airforce where he held both engineering and academic roles. Early in his career he worked as a design engineer on numerous projects including the development of a water removal system for the flight control surfaces on the CF-18 Hornet. Paul has an interdisciplinary engineering background with degrees in Electrical, Chemical and Materials and Nuclear Engineering. His PhD involved the design and development of a neutron tomography system and he is a licensed nuclear reactor operator. Dr. Hungler was a member of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Department at RMC for the past eight years including a year as Acting Head. At Queen’s, Dr. Hungler will be heavily involved in teaching in the APSC design spine and will use his teaching experience and interdisciplinary background to enhance APSC 100 and APSC200.

Prior to accepting the positon at Queen’s,  Dr. Hungler was responsible for online learning for the Canadian Armed Forces including using Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) for individual training and education. Dr. Hungler’s research will be focused on using VR/AR to enhance engineering education and looks forward to many excellent collaborations within the department and faculty.

Chemical Engineering Post-Doctoral Fellow Featured by CMC Microsystems

Congratulations to Post Doctoral Fellow Reza Nosrati for his feature in CMC Microsystems "Success Stories". Read on for a brief preview of the story. 

"For infertile couples, the expense, duration and low success rates of assisted reproduction can make the process a physical and emotional ordeal.

Reza Nosrati, a postdoctoral researcher at Queen’s University aims to change that. Using microfluidics and advanced microscopy, he and his colleagues are developing simple but functional technologies for analysing and selecting sperm, and ultimately improving fertilization rates.

Much of his work has focused on male infertility. As a PhD candidate working under microfluidics expert Professor David Sinton at University of Toronto, one of his earliest projects was to design a simple, easy-to-use microfluidic device that would select sperm by “racing” the cells in microchannels. Winners of this race, when examined, showed 80% higher DNA integrity, making them potentially more successful in commercialized reproduction."
