Marina Pushkareva, working for a PhD under the supervision of Dr. Arnaud Weck, presented her PhD thesis seminar last week. The topic was “Void growth and coalescence in commercially pure titanium”. Well done, Marina!
Yesterday, Jeff Lamonde presented his MASc thesis seminar on “Development of an Autonomous Inspection Robot for Small Diameter Pipes”. Interesting talk, and supervisor Dr. Eric Lanteigne was present to support his student.
Missing in action were the timbits and coffee. There was a near riot, but luckily we staged an intervention. No riots. Sadly, no timbits either.
Ruben Fernandez presented his PhD thesis seminar, giving a talk titled “Deposition of Thick Copper Cold Spray Coatings on Steel for Used Nuclear Fuel Repository using Nitrogen and Pulsed Waterjet Surface Preparation.”
It was a really interesting talk, lots of questions afterwards! Unfortunately, supervisor Dr. Bertrand Jodoin was unable to attend but I am sure he would have been very proud. The labmates stood in for the supervisor in the obligatory photo. Congrats Ruben on almost completing your PhD!
