Rocio Dominguez Medrano presented her thesis seminar

Yesterday, Rocio Dominguez Medrano presented her MASc thesis seminar, titled “development of a sustainable solution for the elimination of helium in the copper cold spray process for used nuclear fuel containers”. Supervisor Professor Bertrand Jodoin was in attendance for the seminar but had to leave right away to be Uber-papa. So, we took the traditional photo with her lab-mates who were all there in support. Congrats, Rocio!

Jacob Hoffer presented his MASc thesis seminar

Yesterday, MASc candidate Jacob Hoffer presented his thesis seminar. Jacob presented a talk titled “development of a draping algorithm for non-structural aerospace composites”. The work was performed under the supervision of thesis supervisor professor Francois Robitaille, whom we were lucky enough to have in attendance for the talk. Congratulations Jacob and Prof. Robitaille!

Manit Ginoya gave a talk

Last week we were honored to hear a special presentation by BASc candidate Manit Ginoya. Manit gave a talk about the work he did during his international experience scholarship, where he spent 3 months as a robotics intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, at the California Institute of Technology. In his spare time, Manit is also the co-founder of the uOttawa Rocketry team who did some awesome things last summer.

Manit’s talk was about the development of the Balloon Locomotion for Extreme Terrain Concept. Members of the uOttawa rocketry also joined us for the talk!
