Bio/Research

Dr. Parkinson was educated at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ont. (B.Sc. (Hon. Chemistry) 1976) and at Queen Mary & Sir John Cass School of Science and Technology, University of London (Ph.D. Spectroscopy and Analytical Chemistry, 1987). Dr. Parkinson's PhD thesis involved the preparation, extraction, reactivity and the complete elucidation of some 70 novel and environmentally important organophosphorus compounds involving many analytical techniques including: mass spectroscopy, gas and liquid chromatography, infra-red and 2D multinuclear NMR spectroscopies. He is presently (as of 1995) an assistant professor in the Chemistry Group of the Environmental Science programme at S.W.G.C. Previous to this, 1992-95, Dr. Parkinson was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Spectroscopy and Analytical Chemistry at Bishop's University, Lennoxville, Quebec. From 1987 to 1992 he was a Research Associate and an Instrumentation Specialist in magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy in the Chemistry department of Tufts University. Here the interest of the work was (1) in the development of amobile GC-MS system and (2) managing a contract service NMR and mass spec. laboratory. Prior to this he held positions at the University of London as Principle NMR Spectroscopist at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College (1985-90), and as the University of London's Low Field Multinuclear NMR Manager at Bedford College (1980-85).
