In this episode, we talk to Dr. Michael Freund, a materials scientist.

Dr. Freund is a professor and the Harry Sherriff Chair of Chemical Research at Dalhousie University. 

He uses his training in analytical chemistry to do research that informs the design of sensors, electrical devices, and energy storage technologies. He’s also the Director of Dalhousie’s Clean Technologies Research Institute, where he facilitates the resources and funding needed to conduct studies that can help build a more sustainable future.

Dr. Freund talks to us about designing sensor arrays that work with machine learning to mimic the brain’s olfactory system, the collaboration between fields to develop new materials, and more.
