Congrats to the dedicated team who worked on this project.

It is an honor to be selected the 2015 Young Scientist Award winner from the American Oil Chemists Society.  I am humbled to be mentioned in the same list as the previous winners including one of my former PhD advisors!  This tremendous recognition was a very large group effort and would not have been possible without the numerous collaborations, undergraduate and graduate students that have worked with me over the past several years.


Dr. Rogers is proud to announce that he is rejoining his old alma matter and has accepted an Associate Professor Position in the Department of Food Science at the University of Guelph.  He will make the move Jan1, 2015.
