Malgorzata Korbas

Senior Scientist at Canadian Light Source

Polish/Canadian living in Saskatchewan, Canada

Gosia is a first-generation university graduate and a multidisciplinary synchrotron researcher with international work experience (Poland, Germany and Canada). She holds M.Sc and Ph.D. in Physics from the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland.

Originally from a small town in Poland, Gosia now calls the Canadian Prairies home. She works as a senior scientist in the only synchrotron centre in Canada called Canadian Light Source (CLS). At CLS, she leads the BioXAS facility, which provides bright X-ray light and X-ray-based analytical techniques to scientists from across the globe.

Gosia’s research focuses on understanding the mechanism of toxicity for global pollutants such as mercury. She has used synchrotron techniques to study mercury speciation and accumulation in creatures as small as zebrafish larvae and as big as whales. Gosia loves sharing her enthusiasm for science and mercury research by engaging in various outreach activities. She finds mentoring high school groups coming to CLS through the Students on the Beamlines program especially rewarding.

Gosia enjoys spending time with her family and their “gentle giant” Berner dog. To relax after work, she practices Pilates, takes photos and makes art. Through the Homeward Bound program, Gosia would like to support women in amplifying their voices. She also hopes to find her voice in raising awareness on issues close to her heart, i.e. mercury pollution, equitable science education and gender equality.
