Young researchers in exo-planetary science gain new knowledge and skills at summer workshop
The Technologies for Exo-Planetary Science (TEPS) CREATE program – directed by York Faculty of Science Dean Ray Jayawardhana – hosted a summer skills workshop May 29 to 31 for its trainees. Held at the University of British Columbia, the workshop attracted 45 postdoctoral Fellows, graduate and undergraduate students – with a large contingent from York University.
“The TEPS Summer Skills Workshop sparked conversations about where the fields of planetary and exo-planetary sciences are heading, and served as a gateway for future collaborations and internships,” said Brittney Cooper, an MSc student working under the supervision of Lassonde Professor John Moores, who is also the deputy program director of TEPS. “The workshop also allowed trainees to hone in their presentation and networking skills, while receiving valuable feedback on their current research and future endeavours.”
