Two civil and environmental doctoral candidates received outstanding student presentation awards in the hydrology section of the annual American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting.

Danyka Byrnes and Robert Chlumsky spoke about their research at the event held online in December. Considered to be one of the premier international geophysical conferences, it normally draws over 25,000 participants.

Michelle Liu carefully plans each hour of each day three weeks in advance to figure out where she needs to be and when.

Between volunteering up to 40 hours a month in several different roles on and off campus and keeping on top of her graduate studies, she constantly checks her changing calendar.

“I call it 80 productive hours a week, divided between volunteering and my studies,” Liu says with a laugh.

Taylor Porter, a Waterloo civil engineering master's candidate, won second place in the 2015 International Student Competition on Cold-formed Steel Design.

Competition participants were required to design a cold-formed steel clip angle for maximum nominal shear strength per unit weight with high fabrication feasibility. This is a design challenge they could see in the workplace.

Nafeesa Mahboob, an electrical and computer engineering doctoral canadiate, received the Basil Papadias Student Paper Award for the best student paper at the biannual IEEE PowerTech 2015 Conference held in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The paper was co-authored by her two doctoral supervisors Claudio Canizares and Catherine Rosenberg, both electrical and computer engineering professors. The award was presented with a plaque and 1000 euros.

Two graduate students will represent the Faculty of Engineering on April 2, 2015 at the University of Waterloo's 3rd annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competitionCompetitors have 1 static slide and 3 minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research to a non-specialist audience.
