Peter Kusalik earned his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry at the University of British Columbia. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Australian National University, he moved to the Department of Chemistry at Dalhousie University. While at Dalhousie he received tenure and was promoted to the rank of Professor. In 2005 he moved to the University of Calgary, where he has served as Head of the Department of Chemistry and as Associate Dean in the Faculty of Science. Dr. Kusalik's research interests center on utilizing molecular simulations to provide insights into the behaviour in liquids, solutions and solids at the microscopic level. Aqueous systems have been a primary focus of much of his research, where explorations of crystal nucleation and growth have been a focal point for much of his group’s recent work. He has published 116 research papers, many in top venues, has received more than 6700 citations and has an h-index of 46.
