The 2018 winner of the Canadian Journal of Chemistry Best Paper Award is:

Krysztof Starosta
Simon Fraser University

For his paper: "Fukushima-derived radioactivity measurements in Pacific salmon and soil samples collected in British Columbia, Canada” published in Can. J. Chem, 2018, 96(2), 124-131

Krzysztof (Kris) Starosta is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Simon Fraser University (SFU) pursuing research in nuclear science, nuclear physics, and nuclear- and radio-chemistry at the Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC) facility at TRIUMF, Canada's particle accelerator centre and in-house at the SFU Nuclear Science Laboratory. He holds an MSc and PhD in experimental nuclear physics from the University of Warsaw, was a post-doctoral fellow and visiting assistant professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and an assistant professor at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University. His research interests include the development of sensitive techniques for measurements of nuclear observables, the application of digital signal processing to nuclear radiation measurements, the production of radioisotopes near and far from stability, as well as experimental and theoretical studies of nuclear structure.
