DESC PhD Student Colloquium

 DESC III PhD Student Colloquium - May 4 & 5, 2017

The third PhD Student Colloquium (DESC III) brings students, supervisors, committee members and other interested faculty together in a forum for information exchange, while providing an invaluable platform for PhD students to enhance their presentation skills. It will include a keynote lecture by a guest speaker and talks by all DPES PhD students, on the nature and progress of their research.

This event is largely planned and coordinated by the students themselves. This year the effort is mostly being spearheaded by PhD Candidates Shahrzad Davarpanah Jazi and Brian Pentz.

This year's guest speaker is Dr. Tony Walker, Assistant Professor at Dalhousie University (School for Resource and Environmental Studies).

Dr. Walker currently focuses his research efforts on management and remediation of contaminated sites, ecological impacts and mitigation of industrial pollution, ecological risk assessment and environmental effects monitoring, management of aquaculture impacts, management of Arctic and Antarctic natural resources, air pollution impacts on ecosystems. Most of his recent research has been in partnership with industry related to environmental management and monitoring across Canada.
