Farewell, Alison!

One of our post-doctoral students, Alison McDonald has accepted a new position as a Research Scientist for a London, Ontario company. This industry role will be a big change for Alison, having been in the academic system since her undergraduate days at University of Waterloo, and we are excited for her and supportive of this new challenge she is undertaking! Her last day will be Friday.

DIESEL trainees are currently recruiting participants for a research study! 

We are actively looking for individuals with overweight or obese body types (as determined by the Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement) for an ergonomics research study taking place on campus in our lab. The aim of this study is to assess differences in physical exposures between varying body composition groups while performing manual material handling tasks. 

Members of DIESEL will be travelling to the Ontario Biomechanics Conference (OBC) at the Nottawasaga Inn in Alliston, Ontario on March 10-12th to present some of their recent research to fellow biomechanics undergraduate and graduate students. Now in it's 14th year, OBC is organized to provide an opportunity for Ontario biomechanics students to network and present their work in a casual and nurturing environment.
