The Student Research Café is back!

Posted on: Jan 26, 2022

The Office of Research Services is pleased to announce the re-launch of the Student Research Café series!

Please RSVP here to join us for this virtual event on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at noon.

What is the Student Research Café?

The Student Research Café provides an opportunity for students and researchers to meet informally, and for students to engage directly with researchers.

Students will be invited to ask questions about topics ranging from research in an academic environment to career choices and entrepreneurial opportunities.

This month, students will have the chance to meet with Dr. Chris Striemer.

Speaker Profile

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Dr. Striemer completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Saskatchewan, and then earned both his Masters and PhD from the University of Waterloo.  He also worked as an EEG/ERP research assistant at Dalhousie University, and as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Western Ontario’s Brain and Mind Institute.

Now an associate professor at MacEwan University, Dr. Striemer’s research interests include the neuroscience of attention, perception, and visuomotor control. He studies these topics using techniques such as behavioural testing, kinematic recordings, and brain stimulation.

This event series is organized by the Office of Research Services. Research at Concordia University of Edmonton is supported in part by the Research Support Fund, a Tri-Agency initiative that assists Canadian post-secondary institutions with costs associated with managing research funded by the federal research granting agencies. Concordia University of Edmonton acknowledges the value of this support and appreciates this ongoing research investment.
