Math and Science grad student seminar series returns for fall

Trees and bees are the focus of upcoming biological sciences research presentations that will kick off the Graduate Mathematics and Science Students (GRAMSS) Seminar Series for the 2023-24 academic year.

The series unites graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty members from a wide range of disciplines within the Faculty of Mathematics and Science to foster a supportive and multidisciplinary environment for research exchange, said GRAMSS Communications Officer and Seminar Co-ordinator Ricardo Alva (BSc ’19), a Master of Science student studying cell and molecular biology.

“Over the past year, we’ve featured engaging talks in mathematics, physics, health sciences and computer sciences, along with a guest speaker from McMaster University,” he said. “With two upcoming talks in biological sciences, this series offers invaluable opportunities for learning, networking, socializing and honing oral presentation skills.”

The GRAMSS Seminar Series is planned to take place bi-weekly on Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. and is open to all Brock graduate and undergraduate students as well as faculty and staff. Upcoming presentations include:

  • “Can atmospheric pollution be tracked using trees?” — Thursday, Nov. 9 from 1 to 2 p.m. in MCJ 209. Presented by Danielle Martin, a Master of Science in Biological Sciences student.
  • Aggression is not a feature of female bees that monopolize reproduction” — Thursday, Nov. 23 from 1 to 2 p.m. in MCJ 209. Presented by James Mesich, a Master of Science in Biological Sciences student.

Information regarding additional presentations will be shared on GRAMSS’ Instagram and X pages.
