CHE Master's Research Colloquium

Interested in learning more about the fascinating research that Waterloo's chemical engineering graduate students are conducting? Now is your chance!

Join us at the Master's Research Colloquium, where master's students will present their research throughout the day.

POSTER SESSION: 9:15-10:15 am in the 1st and 3rd floor atriums


Session 1

Group A, Process Systems Engineering: E6 2024 10:30-11:30 am

Group B, Biochemical & Biomedical Engineering: E6 2022 10:30-11:15 am

X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is a useful technique for studying electronic and structural properties of materials. When these measurements are performed in-situ, it is valuable to identify the reactive species and monitor the reaction kinetics. This could significantly improve our understanding of material property and advance the rational design of material with improved performance.

In the chemical process industry, the need to make decisions in a context of multiple and competing objectives is frequent. Thanks to advances in the field of operational research and systems science, several methods of multi-objective optimization have emerged that can be applied to chemical and biochemical engineering processes. These techniques incorporate the knowledge of an expert of a given process to the optimization routine, which provides valuable information about the domain of optimal solutions.

Seminar | Engineering Value, by Dr. David Bruce

In engineering, as in life, there is usually no defined path or prescribed route to take in search of difficult answers. Looking at how we travel through our careers, transitioning to industry from our studies or taking the next step in academia, we can examine the critical decisions and choices we make in how we can grow to best serve our profession. Value in being an engineer comes from how we make these choices and in learning how to shape the driving factors behind the process itself. Please join us for a discussion about our value in society and how we can work to increasing the golden mean.

Seminar | Materials Bioeconomy and Solutions from the Forest, by Professor Orlando J. Rojas

Professor Rojas will introduce the vision of the future “Materials Bioeconomy” of Finland by way of the recently funded Aalto-VTT Flagship that is designed to catalyze fundamental research that will lead to scientific as well as economic impacts.

Dr. Higgins will address important aspects of CO2R catalyst development, including alloying and surface structure engineering approaches to tune activity and selectivity. He will discuss the remaining challenges facing artificial photosynthesis technology deployment, along with preliminary results for the integration of CO2R catalysts into practical device prototypes.
