Event: SFU Research Masterclass Series

March 26, 2014

The main idea of the IRMACS Centre's series "SFU Research Masterclass" is to have a group of prominent SFU researchers that will, instead of an academic lecture on their research topic, tell the story of their research path and the "best practices" and tips they learned along the way - how they came to be interested in the topic, how their research directions have changed over the years, any major shifts in direction, who their collaborators are and how they developed those collaborations, etc. The format of each event will be a sit down session with an interviewer, rather than a standard presentation format. This is followed by a Q&A with the audience. We invite SFU graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, as well as SFU researchers across the disciplines, SFU research personnel, and researcher grant facilitators to attend the "SFU Research Masterclass" sessions.

Date: Friday, March 28, 2014
Time: 11:30-12:20
Room: IRMACS Presentation Studio, ASB 10900, Burnaby Campus
