Brian Wagner

Biography

Professor

BSc (Hons), Dalhousie University (1985); PhD, University of Western Ontario (1990)

Dr. Brian Wagner researches the ability of large, hollow, cage-like “host” molecules to encapsulate other small “guest” molecules. This often increases the fluorescence, or the ability to emit light, of the guests. Real-world applications include enhanced trace analysis of pesticides and the design of molecular sensors.
