It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mehran Alaee on April 28, 2021 at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
He is survived by his partner Karen and daughter Jessica. He was a loving, supportive partner, father, brother uncle and a special Abu to Lucas.
Mehran loved life. He was genuine, giving, considerate and had a passion for the environment. He was always caring towards family, friends and colleagues alike. All difficult circumstances could be softened with his passion to cook and feed others.
Mehran was an expert in environmental mass spectrometry and a highly respected scientist with numerous international collaborations. Over the years, his research targeted some of the key challenges in the field of aquatic contaminants. His efforts will have a lasting impact and have helped to change Environment and Climate Change Canada policies and regulations. He also sat on several international scientific committees.
Mehran’s desire to carry on his environmental legacy led him to be an adjunct professor at various universities, where he mentored many students and post-docs over the years. Through them his passion for the environment will live on.
Mehran will be greatly missed by family, friends and colleagues. He has left this world a better place and those who knew him with an appreciation of his kindness and compassion.
Tributes in Mehran’s memory can be made to either Hamilton Out of the Cold or Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation.
