Welcome New Employee – Natalie Hamada

Natalie will be joining the CCEM staff as a research associate. She is responsible for the Titan TEMs.

A note from Natalie: I obtained a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Purdue University where I characterized the material properties and morphology of iron-strengthened protein adhesives produced by marine mussels. My research interests include analytical electron microscopy and soft materials, in particular organic-inorganic interfaces.  In my free time I enjoy gardening and spending time outdoors with my two dogs.

Welcome New Employee – Jhoynner Martinez

Jhoynner will be joining the CCEM staff as a lab technician. He is responsible for sample preparation and SEM.

A note from Jhoynner: I am a very focused and knowledge driven individual with the desire to help and teach but also to learn. I attended Cathedral High School and am a Mohawk College Graduate with an Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Eng. Technology. This year I am working on becoming a Certified Technologist. I started here at the CCEM as a co-op student and learned that electron microscopy was something that I enjoy and would love to expand my knowledge on. I previously worked as a steel worker at a company called Salit Steel that focuses mainly on re-bar. I am also a manager and co-owner of a cleaning business.
