NSERC'S SCIENCE, ACTION! 2019

1st Place Finish!

NSERC Science, Action! is a yearly program where students can submit 60-second videos that showcase NSERC funded research.  The videos are targeted towards a non-specialist audience.  My submitted video made it to the top 15 during the public voting round. The top videos were judged by an internal panel, and I received first place in the competition. Check it out above, or on NSERC's YouTube page here.
