Lee Wilson obtained his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Winnipeg in 1992. Wilson obtained a PhD from the University of Saskatchewan under the supervision of Ron Verrall in 1998 in the area of Physical Chemistry. He later joined the Functional Materials Program under the supervision of John Ripmeester at the National Research Council of Canada as a NSERC Visiting Fellow until 2003. In 2004, Wilson was appointed in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Saskatchewan and is now an Associate Professor.  Wilson’s research interests cover areas of physical chemistry, materials and environmental science, colloids, polymers, interfacial phenomena, supramolecular chemistry, and water. The Wilson research group is developing new sustainable materials for the controlled removal of contaminants from water and chemical separations using methods based on green chemistry.
