Jasmeet Singh Ladoiye presented his MASc thesis seminar

For the last seminar of winter 2018, Jasmeet Singh Ladoiye presented his MASc work at our MCG seminar series. Jasmeet’s talk was titled “control of surgical robot using model predictive control with time delay”. Unfortunately neither thesis supervisor (Drs. Dan Necsulescu and Jurek Sasiadek) could be in attendance. Congratulations Jasmeet on your seminar and on getting closer to completing your MASc! Thanks to everyone that participated in this semester’s seminar series. See you next semester!

Last Friday, another one of my students presented his MASc thesis seminar. Franck Tchuente presented his talk on “Recognition and classification of agressive movements using a smart watch”. The work was also co-supervised by Dr. Edward Lemaire at the Ottawa hospital rehabilitation institute. As always, I’m super-proud of my students. Great work, Franck!

First seminar of 2018!

To kick off 2018, PhD student Huan Huang presented her thesis seminar, titled “Methods for bearing fault diagnosis under constant and time-varying speed conditions”. Huan is working on her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Ming Liang and myself. Dr. Liang could not join us but I was honored to have my photo taken with my student (thanks to Yang for taking the photo)!
