Kiyoshi Robson

This year’s winner of the Award for Graduate Work in Inorganic Chemistry goes to Kiyoshi Robson of the University of Calgary. Last December, the Vernon, B.C. native completed his PhD, studying tridentate cycloruthenated sensitizers for the dyesensitized solar cells under professor Curtis Berlinguette. The work has spawned one patent and 12 peer-reviewed articles, with five more anticipated. Robson delivered his award lecture, “Supramolecular Materials,” at the Canadian Chemistry Conference in Québec City in May.
