Last Friday, Andrée-Anne Dion-Dallaire presented her MASc work, titled “A 3D Solution-Adaptive Framework for Hyperbolic PDEs with Application to Explosive Dispersal of Radioactive Material”. Supervisor Professor James McDonald was present for the talk and obligatory photo. Congrats to Andrée-Anne and Prof. McDonald!
On Friday, Qiang Xiao presented his PhD thesis seminar, showcasing research work under the supervision of Professor Matei Radulescu. The title of Qiang’s talk was “Propagation Characteristics of 2H2/O2/2Ar Cellular Detonations in Exponential Horns.” Congratulation to Qiang and Prof. Radulescu!
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!
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!
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!
Last Friday, William Morin presented his MASc thesis seminar titled “A New Moment Model for Radiative-Transport Prediction”. His MASc work was performed under the supervision of Professor James McDonald, who was also in attendance. Congrats, William!
Last week, Amir Daoud presented his MASc thesis seminar, giving a talk titled “Cold Gas Dynamic Spray Additive Manufacturing of Moisture-Electric Energy Transformation Devices”. It was a super interesting talk! Unfortunately, supervisor Dr. Bertrand Jodoin was unable to attend but Amir’s lab mates made up for it! Congrats, Amir!
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, 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…
MASc candidate Seyed Alireza Mirghasemi presented his thesis seminar titled “Fractional-Order Flight Controller for Quadcopter Subjected to Ground Effect” last Friday. Supervisor Professor Dan Necsulescu was in attendance for the presentation. Congrats, Alireza!
