BSc, Chemistry

Research Assistant


  1. Zach obtained his Honours B.Sc. (Chemistry, 2019) in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at McMaster University


Research Interests

Zach’s research largely focuses on Drugs of Abuse (DoA) using multisegment injection-capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry, a method developed and validated in Dr. Britz-McKibbin’s lab. Recently, Zach has been involved in collaborative work with colleagues across McMaster as well as from other academic institutions and industry, performing metabolomic analysis a variety of biological samples including: urine, serum, plasma, intestinal fluid, stool, cecum, dried blood spots, and cell extracts. Currently his efforts are being used to study the impact of urbanization on the development of nutritional and physical activity changes, obesity, hypertension, dysglycemia, dyslipidemia, smoking, and CVD in the large-scale PURE (Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiological) study with collaborators in the Health Sciences department.
