Annual Research Symposium
On November 13th, 2019, the Beaty Water Research Centre and LEADERS Program hosted its 2nd Annual Research Symposium. The Symposium was established to improve the flow and communication of ideas by bringing together researchers from Queen’s University and the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) who are often separated by departments or schools.
Students and Faculty heard about the BWRC from the Director, Dr. Pascale Champagne, as well as opening addresses from Dr. Amir Fam (Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences), Dr. Nick Mosey (Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Arts and Sciences) and Dr. Kent Novakowski (Associate VP Research). Lastly, Dr. Matt Hipsey from the University of Australia delivered a keynote talk on "Prediction in Complex Aquatic Landscapes - experiences from down under."
We had over 30 students present posters and oral presentations from Queen’s and RMC students from a variety of departments including: civil engineering, chemical engineering, geological sciences, biology, chemistry, and environmental studies. Students had the opportunity to further develop their communication skills through the poster presentation and network among each other and faculty.
