On December 7th, the Faculty of Social Sciences hosted their annual Research Colloquium. This event is an opportunity to hear from the faculty recipients of two awards presented each year by the Faculty of Social Sciences: Distinguished Researcher and Early Career Researcher. Typically, the Colloquium features presentations by faculty awardees from the previous year. In addition to faculty award winners, the Research Colloquium features presenters selected from among recent recipients of the FOSS Student Research Award.
As one of the recipients of this year’s FOSS Student Research Award, Master of Sustainability student Tannaz Sattar presented her research titled “Urban Green Space Typology and the Main Indicators for Maximizing their Performance; Case Studies of Isfahan, Milan, and Toronto”. This research was supervised by Dr. Ryan Plummer, and investigates the presence or absence of some urban green space categories in the three case studies, which are city of Isfahan in Iran, city of Milan in Italy, and city of Toronto in Canada.
