Macumber and Nasser Win Awards for Presentations

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

The 2015 Ottawa-Carleton Student Northern Research Symposium was a huge success, particularly for two graduate students in Professor Tim Patterson's group. Ph.D. candidates Andrew Macumber and Nawaf Nasser won the only two awards available for best presentation. Their talks were entitled:

  • Macumber, A.L., Patterson, R.T., Galloway, J.M., Vermaire, J.C., Falck, H., Clark, I. The paleoclimate of the Holocene warm period as archived by lakes in the central Northwest Territories, Canada.
  • Nasser, N.A., Patterson, R.T., Roe, H.M., Galloway, J.M., Falck, H., Palmer, M.J., Kokelj, S.V., Sanei, H., Macumber, A.L., Neville, L.A. Arcellaceans (testate lobose amoebae) as bioindicators of arsenic contamination in the Yellowknife region, Northwest Territories, Canada

A total of 32 students from Carleton and the University of Ottawa participated in the symposium. For both winners to come from the same department was no less than an exceptional achievement.

Congratulations to you both!
