We are pleased to welcome Dylan Jubinville to 5REDO as a co-op student with expertise in polymer chemistry and processing. Dylan is currently pursuing his PhD degree in engineering under supervision of Prof. Tiz Mekonnen in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo.

Dylan finished his undergraduate studies in Biomedical Engineering with a Chemistry minor at the University of Guelph. He then joined the Bioproducts Discovery and Development Centre at the University of Guelph where he received his master’s degree in Biological Engineering. The focus of his research was on process and performance of sustainable polyamide 6 blends and biocomposites. Prior to starting his PhD, he worked in industry for one year.

At 5REDO, Dylan will support the development of decision-making tools facilitating the circularity of polymers and improving the sustainability of plastic products.
