Graduate Students Highly Successful at Canada's Largest Physics Conference

Congratulations to our graduate students who were recognized for their excellent presentations at this year's Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) Congress. The meeting began with a specialized Soft Matter Day - Carmen Lee, a PhD student working with Dr. Kari Dalnoki-Veress, tied for 1st place for her poster in this section of the meeting. The main portion of the conference spanned five days and multiple divisions of physics. At the end of the week, Wyatt Kirby (a PhD student working with Dr. Duncan O'Dell) was awarded 3rd place for his talk in the Division of Theoretical Physics, and Carmen Lee and John Niven (also working with Dr. Dalnoki-Veress) were awarded 1st and 2nd place respectively for their talks in the Division of Condensed Matter and Materials Physics. Carmen then went on to compete as one of the eight finalists in the overall student talk competition, where she did extremely well, finishing in 2nd place overall.

Congratulations to Carmen, John, Wyatt, and all of the other McMaster attendees who all gave excellent presentations.

The CAP Congress is an annual Canadian physics conference covering all fields of physics - the largest conference in Canada. The 2018 CAP Congress was held from June 11 - 15 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS.
