CTR Hosts First Grad Student Symposium
CTR hosted a Graduate Student Symposium on Wednesday, May 8, at the WPR building. This event gave grad students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills in a timed competition—each student had seven minutes to encapsulate their research on a particular project. Oscar Galvis Arce and Ramez Hajj won the overall competition, while Amy Fong won the Research Communication Award and Felipe Dias won the Presentation Style Award. The students and researchers enjoyed the cross-pollination of ideas, and have already begun speculating on potential collaborations. Future symposia will broaden to involve students from all branches of the CAEE Department, to provide grad students this valuable presentation experience. See the Facebook photo album.
