For his original research in the area of NMR spectrometry and especially its direct application to multiphase mixtures.

About the Winner

André Simpson obtained his PhD from the University of Birmingham (UK) then moved to the U.S. completing two postdoctoral fellowships, first at Mississippi State and then at Ohio State University. André is now an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto and is best known for his research developing nuclear magnetic resonance based methods to study the structure and interactions in complex environmental mixtures. His research has helped understand how and why different carbon pools respond to climate change and unravel the complexities of contaminant fate and toxicity in the environment. 

André has published more than 80 refereed articles since his first journal publication in 2000 and contributed to 12 book chapters. In 2004, he co-founded the Environmental NMR Center at the University of Toronto, a first of its kind in Canada. In 2008 was ranked in the "Ten to Watch for 2008" by the Toronto Star. Later in the same year he awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry/Society for Environmental and Toxicology and Chemistry - Environmental Science Award, recognizing outstanding contributions to the field.

In 2010 he was awarded the Canadian Society for Chemistry, Fred Beamish Award, for innovations in Analytical Chemistry.
