About this Event

McMaster University

Friday, March 13th @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Saturday, March 14th, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4 pm

The McMaster Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Initiative is pleased to invite you to our upcoming Current Research in Engineering, Science & Technology (CREST) Meeting!

CREST is an interdisciplinary celebration, not only of females in STEM, but also of the exciting research being conducted in these domains more broadly. CREST offers an excellent venue for students, postdocs, and faculty of all genders to present their research in an interdisciplinary environment, network with local academics, and learn more about research opportunities in academia or industry through a series of professional development workshops, interactive career panels, and social mixers. A full schedule is now available on our website: www.mcmasterwise.com/crest.

Keynote Address: We are excited to announce this year’s Keynote Speaker, Dr. Jennifer Campos, who is a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Multisensory Integration and Aging. Jenny is the Associate Director - Academic, Senior Scientist, Chief Scientist of the Challenging Environments Assessment Laboratory and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology (University of Toronto). She is also the Director of the iDAPT Young Innovators youth outreach program.
