Images of Research Competition 2016

University of Alberta graduate students made 114 submissions to the Images of Research Competition 2016. The submissions highlighted that graduate student research at UAlberta takes place in studios and science labs, in the field and on the ice. From steel joints to self-determination; forest fire sensors to fossil record research; from drag kings to disease-resistant peas, UAlberta graduate student research is diverse and global. A multi-disciplinary 5 person adjudication committee reviewed all submissions and selected winners. The University of Alberta community voted for the People's Choice Award and the winning image garnered 122 votes out of 765 votes. The winning and semifinalist images are available in ERA (the University of Alberta’s digital repository) after the Images of Research exhibition.
