CALUMET'S  40/20 ANNIVERSARY EVENT

CALUMET FACULTY RESEARCH PROFILE SERIES

Presents

DR. JANUSZ KOZINSKI

Speaking on

SYMBIOSIS BETWEEN BIOENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Dr. Janusz Kozinski is the Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at York University.  After his PhD in Poland and postdoctoral training at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he taught at McGill, the University of Saskatchewan and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in France.  His research focuses on sustainable energy systems including biofuels and bioenergy.  

Symbiosis, by definition, describes a close association of animals or plants of different species that is often, but not always, of mutual benefit. This presentation will outline a new type of symbiosis; a cooperative, mutually beneficial relationship between energy and the human environment. The focus will be on

  • The potential application of bioenergy in everyday life as well as in exotic endeavors (e.g., Mars exploration),
  • The application of supercritical water in the conversion of organic wastes into clean energy,
  • The generation of hydrogen fuel from bio-resources in greenhouse gas-free processes

Presents

FRAN WILKINSON

Professor of Psychology and Member of the Centre for Vision Research at York University.  Her research on visual neuroscience currently examines the connection between vision and migraine headache, the mechanisms of face and object recognition in the visual brain, and how vision changes during aging.

Speaking on

FROM CATS EYES TO HEADACHES: Adventures in Neuroscience

Thoughout my career I have been fascinated by how the visual pathways of the brain capture and interpret the visual world.  In this talk, I will briefly describe the sometimes winding path my own research career has taken, examining this central question in neuroscience from a variety of angles, using new technologies as they have come into being.  I will then discuss my current work on vision and migraine headache as an example both of the interface between basic and clinical neuroscience, and of the role of serendipity in research.

Students often say they want to get to know professors as people, and not just as instructors in front of a class.  This series presents eminent York faculty speaking on their broad research interests rather than about a single narrow topic.  Come to lear what professors have devoted their careers to studying, how they do what they do, and why they and you, find it fascinating.

What do children need to be healthy and happy?
