Born in Buckingham, Que., Janine Mauzeroll completed a BSc in 1999 in chemistry at McGill University, followed by a PhD in 2004 in electrochemistry at the premier laboratory of Allen J. Bard at the University of Texas at Austin. Following this, Mauzeroll undertook a PDF position at l’Université de Paris 7 in the theoretical electrochemistry group of Jean-Micheal Savéant. In 2005, she returned to Canada and took up a faculty position at the Université de Québec à Montréal, where she held a NSERC – University Faculty Award for a five year term. In 2012, she returned to her Alma Mater, where as associate professor of chemistry, she is working in the field of applied electrochemistry. Her work consistantly combines experimental and theoretical electrochemical methods applied to pressing biomedical and industrial problems such as multidrug resistance in human cancer cells and corrosion in magnesium containing automobiles. Her publication record at a relatively early-career stage (including two one-year maternity leaves) includes 35 papers in high profile journals such as the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, the Journal American Chemical Society, Angewandte Chemie Int., and Analytical Chemistry. She has given 32 invited talks including an invited keynote address at Kyushu Mg Network in Japan and trained 40 HQPs.
