Michelle Parker

MITACS Research Award Winner

"Thanks to the MITACS award, my project on fire and the application of wood ash effects on stabilized soil will be funded. This research experience will familiarize me with methods used in the field and lab to collect data. I will be able to learn statistical methods beyond what I've learned in my undergraduate studies. All these new experiences will contribute to improving my research career. This project will be my honours thesis and my first independent research project, which I'll present to the Geology department. Depending on the results, I may even share the work at a scientific conference."
