A glimpse into graduate research – TRU Newsroom

October 2, 2020 at 5:24 pm  Education, Kamloops, News

Join us for this exciting Tap into Research | Gift of Learning presentation featuring three TRU Master of Science in Environmental Science students. Aramide Taiwo, Ted Morton and Kyley Drach recently competed in TRU’s first ever virtual Three Minute Thesis competition, and all placed in the Top 3. What they will be discussing:

First up, Aramide Taiwo explores whether poultry farms are a source of environmental arsenic. To conduct her research, Taiwo employs capillary electrophoresis to determine the amount of organoarsenicals in poultry farm waters.

Next, Ted Morton discusses how mountain biking is challenging sustainable development in British Columbia’s rural and Indigenous communities.

Finally, there are a variety of harmful chemicals in women’s disposable sanitary products that lead to adverse health effects. Kyley Drach discusses her research, which explores whether switching to reusable products may reverse these effects.

This event takes place on YouTube premier, and the three students will be available to answer questions. Join us!
