Paulina Ramirez Niembro connects to culture in Victoria

Paulina is part of a team working on the Centre for Youth and Society’s “Stronger Together” research project that includes Indigenous community knowledge keepers and students from the Indigenous Communities Counselling program in the Department of Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies. She has assisted in building the knowledge base for two projects involving indigenous culture as it relates to youth mental health, and to youth cultural identity.

Aishwarya Roy: Launching a research career in Canada

Her Globalink research internship project under Professor Dae-Sik Moon at the University of Toronto’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics is employing  new technology that was originally developed for  the James Webb Space Telescope — a collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency.  Aishwarya’s project involves selecting and testing optical components that will ultimately give astronomers the ability to see the faintest glows of light from the earliest moments of the universe, as well as the formation of stars, planetary systems and galaxies.

Rodrigo Araujo de Medeiros: Developing pipeline reliability

Originally from Brazil’s Universidade Federal da Paraiba, Rodrigo is developing risk-based methods to efficiently and strategically predict which sections of the pipeline are most in need of maintenance or repair. These methods would help to ensure the long-term integrity of many of the oil and gas pipelines that cross Canada, preventing environmental damage caused by spills.

Research dreams take flight

Working as part of the Autonomous Reconfigurable/Robotic Systems Group at the Schulich School of Engineering, Adyasha is helping to further develop a special highly maneuverable, high-speed drone bi-copter capable to fly in confined spaces and other areas such as collapsed buildings typically encountered in urban search and rescue, or mining environments.  Devices like this, which have been under development at the U of C since 2005, could be deployed during disasters to direct rescuers to find stranded survivors.

Postcard from Turkey: University of Ottawa master’s student helps contain greenhouse gases

At the University of Ottawa’s Chemical and Biological Engineering department, I work with Dr. Tezel and Dr. Boguslaw Kruczek to investigate the potential for inorganic membranes to capture greenhouse gases. Although these membranes are well suited to large-scale applications, they are a few years away from industrial implementation.
