Sara Belontz has joined our team!

Sara started her PhD project on May 1, 2017. She will be studying microplastics in bottom sediments of the Laurentian Great Lakes system.


Anika is back!

Anika Ballent graduated with her MSc degree this past summer and she is now the Education Coordinator at Algalita Research. She’s back in London for a few days helping Kelly and Sarah with microplastics separation and identification.

Yesterday, Kelly joined Scott Howe’s Grade 8 class from Woodland Heights Public School to demonstrate how we sample for microplastics in bottom sediments of Dingman Creek using a petite ponar grab sampler .
