Dr. Allan Bertram



Faculty of Science

Dr. Bertram received his BSc from the University of Prince Edward Island and PhD from the University of Waterloo, where he studied the freezing behaviour of polar stratospheric clouds. Following an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia in 2001. He was a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Environmental and Atmospheric Chemistry from 2001 to 2011, and in 2012 he became a Full Professor at UBC. Recently, he was awarded an NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplement Award (2008–2011), the Chemical Institute of Canada Environment Division Research & Development Dima Award (2015), and the UBC Killam Faculty Research Prize (2017). He is also the former director of an interdisciplinary atmospheric aerosol program funded through the NSERC CREATE program. Currently, he serves as Co-editor of the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (2013–present). His research group focuses on the chemistry and physics of atmospheric aerosols and the role these aerosols play in urban air pollution, climate change and atmospheric chemistry.
