Last week, Bilal Jarrah presented his PhD thesis seminar, titled “Fractional order and inverse problem solutions for plate temperature control”. The research was performed under the supervision of Dr. Dan Necsulescu. Congratulations to both Bilal and his supervisor!
Last Friday, MASc candidate Jian Mei presented his thesis seminar. The title of his talk was “Distributed Coverage Control of Multi-Agent System in Convective–Diffusive Time Evolving Environments”. Unfortunately, supervisor Dr. Davide Spinello was teaching a the time and couldn’t be present. Thanks for the seminar, Jian!
This is still one of my favorite days of the academic year – the graduate student poster day! I love going around and taking photos of our smiling graduate students! I took pictures of MCG or CREATE-BEST students. I’m just a little biased there. 🙂
Last Friday, building on our previous ‘intro to lit review’ seminar, our librarian, Evan Sterling, returned to give a talk on advanced literature searching, publishing and promoting yourself. You can find his slides here.
Don’t forget that you can always reach Evan by email at Evan.Sterling@uottawa.ca or book an in-person appointment https://uottawa.libcal.com/appointments/ESterling.
This Friday, I gave an introduction to literature reviews. If you are interested in the presentation, I’m posting it here: Intro to lit review.
Last Friday, Andre Fecteau presented his MASc thesis seminar. He gave a talk titled “An investigation of the onset of deflagration to detonation transition”. Supervisors Drs. James McDonald and Matei Radulescu were also present for the talk. Congrats, everyone!
I’m super proud of my grad student, Yang Luo, who presented his PhD thesis seminar last Friday. Co-supervisor Dr. Ming Liang would also have been pleased if he could have been present. Well done, Yang! One step closer to finishing…
Evan Sterling, our Science and Engineering librarian, gave a special seminar for us.
Mystified by trying to find information in a new research area? Daunted by the idea of doing a research term paper or a thesis lit review? In this presentation, Evan discussed how to design and execute an effective literature search, and showed us tips and tricks for Scopus and Zotero.
In case you missed it, you can see the presentation from his slides here:

Welcome back to everyone for another academic year of MCG seminars! It was good to see such a full house on our first day.
To kick things off for the semester, MASc candidate Nathaniel Mailhot presented his thesis seminar titled “Pupil Tracking and Control of a Laser Based Power System for a Vision Restoring Retinal Implant”. A really interesting talk! Supervisor Dr. Spinello was also present for the seminar and photo-op. Congrats, Nathaniel!
Last Wednesday, MASc candidate Vinay Singh presented his thesis seminar titled “Design and Shape Optimization of Unmanned, Semi-Rigid Airship for Rapid Descent Using Hybrid Genetic Algorithm”. Supervisor Dr. Eric Lanteigne was present for the seminar and the photo op. Thanks to everyone who came out to the seminars this summer!
