Keynote Speakers:

Robin Mazumder @robinmazumder (April 24)

Robin Mazumder is doctoral candidate in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Waterloo, where he is studying the psychological impacts of urban design. His research is inspired by his passion for urbanism, his front line experience working as an occupational therapist in mental health, and his interest in human≠centred design. He graduated with his Master's in Occupational Therapy from the University of Toronto in 2011 and completed training in design thinking in 2015 with Stanford's D School.


Lego Grad Student @LegoGradStudent (April 25)

“A hollow head struggling to make it through a blocky world.”

Whether you care to openly admit it or not, grad school has probably felt like a sledgehammer repeatedly slamming into your face and soul. Spend an hour with Lego Grad Student as he attempts to explain why this is a perfectly normal–but not inevitable–feeling, and offers painfully learned advice on how you can manage it.
