Associate Professor

BSc, MSc (Dalhousie); PhD (British Columbia)

Dr. Douglas Dahn's research focuses on experimental materials science, scanning probe microscopy, and instrumentation and measurement technologies. Collaborating with UPEI chemists, he is investigating the properties of materials that may be useful in rechargeable batteries. He also works on an innovative approach to detect and monitor automatically insects, using electrical capacitance.
