Update September 5, 2014: Thesis defense date has been scheduled, see the attached PDF announcement:
I have been honoured to work with the incredibly inspirational Dr. Richard Thompson and Dr. Mark Haykowsky at the University of Alberta on a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering.
As I move towards completion and defense of my thesis, and publication of the results from our major pilot study, I thought it would be nice to post some video of the content I have been studying and presenting at several conferences. The first is a video of the Research Elevator Pitch Competition (or the Thesis in Three Minutes) at the Faculty of Engineering Graduate Research Symposium 2014. I was honoured to be awarded 2nd place in the competition; the winner, Katherin Evans, had an incredible pitch on “Optimizing a Tactor System to Provide Sensory Feedback for Upper Limb Amputees”.
Added a few reactions to make the video a little more dynamic and enjoyable. Here is the video of the full 12 minute that I was honoured to give at the Faculty of Engineering Graduate Research Symposium 2014. This is very similar to the talk that I gave at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine Annual Meeting in Milan, Italy May 10-18 2014.
