Innovations in Research

A dynamic evening to spotlight SFU researchers who are moving us Towards Equity.

Join us in a unique virtual environment using Gather to engage directly with SFU faculty, students, staff, alumni and community partners who are moving us Towards Equity with innovative research from a variety of fields and perspectives.

Using Gather allows us to capture some of the magic of an in-person event. You’ll be able to move about the virtual space, mingle with other attendees and speak with researchers about their work at poster booths. After some free-form exploration, we’ll all gather for rapid-fire presentations and a Q&A panel moderated by Dugan O’Neil, Vice-President, Research and International at SFU.

Learn more about these Innovations in Research by exploring the showcase pages below featuring project summaries, videos, images and researcher bios. Come back often as we build more pages!

Gather is a fun and easy way to get together virtually. It’s like a video game! Try this demo and read these instructions for more. You do NOT need to create an account and Gather will NOT store your information.

If you have any accessibility requests, please email Seth Erais at



In addition to hosting a booth, these researchers will take the virtual stage to give five-minute presentations about their work before a Q&A panel moderated by Dugan O’Neil, VP Research.


Visit these researchers at their booths during the event to talk to them about their work.
