May 12, 2017

SFU's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) finals this year took place on March 27th, 2017 in the Big Data Hub Theatre. David Yin presented "Detection of Low Concentration Ammonia Gas Using Differential Laser Induced Fluorescence". 

After completing his Bachelor's degree in Applied Science (Honours) in 2015, David decided to continue his academic career as a Master's student in the Engineering Science program.

His research focuses on the development of a gas sensor prototype for power transformer diagnostics. The research team includes his supervisor, Dr. Glenn Chapman, and Dr. Bonnie Gray of the School of Engineering Science, Dr. Daniel Leznoff’s inorganic chemistry group, and Powertech Inc., a BC Hydro subsidiary, as the strategic industry partner.

Aside from academic research, David has also completed several industry internships at Siemens Ltd. (China), Xerox Research Centre of Canada, and Shield-X Technology Inc.


One take, one static slide, no props.
Just 3 minutes and the power of the spoken word.

3MT is an unparalleled interdisciplinary opportunity for you to hear about the interesting research that's taking place around the university, as well as to pick up some presentation techniques from some of the best graduate student presenters at SFU — and all in 3-minute segments.
