In this episode, we talk to Dr. Chuck Macdonald, an inorganic chemist.

Dr. Macdonald attended Dalhousie University for both his undergraduate degree and his PhD studies. Years later, he returned to his alma mater to take position as the Dean of Science.

As Dean, Dr. Macdonald is leading the charge to enhance science programming and facilities – all while working to improve equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility within the Dal Science community.

Dr. Macdonald talks to us about growing up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, his experience specializing in inorganic chemistry, and the big – picture projects he tackles as a university administrator.
