Who are we?
Who are we?
Entropy Labs is the result of founder Mark Zaidi's curiosity and obsession with amazing materials and the chemistry behind them.
With the guidance of Dr. Bryan Koivisto, Dr. Umberto Berardi, and the Science Discovery Zone, Entropy Labs came to be.
Our mission is simple: do things differently.
Chaos is beautiful, if you know where to look, and how to harness it.
Welcome to Entropy Labs.
Mark sees the world through a scientific lens, "and it's beautiful," he says.
"From the food you eat, to the music you enjoy, it all is thanks to the often-invisible world of chemistry."
Born and raised in Toronto to two cancer researchers, Mark has always been encouraged to learn how things work, at even the smallest level. His early introduction to science has allowed him to immerse himself into the scientific community with haste.
A student researcher at the STTARR Imaging Facility, Mark works with programs such as MATLAB to analyze hypoxic cancer cells. He is a Terry Fox Research Institute Poster Presentation Winner, Sheldon and Tracy Levy Innovator Award Winner, Taekwondo Black Belt, and holds an RA Grant for Entropy Lab's work on Aerogel with Ryerson University.
"Aerogel is an amazing substance," he says, "and our making it accessible can change the face of science in numerous fields."
"I'm excited to see what we can do here at Entropy Labs. As far as we know, we've not found the limit of the universe. We choose to consider our work to be the same: limitless."
