Thumbs up to Cassandra!

Congratulations to Cassandra Lee for the completion of her Masters’ thesis! Cassandra has completed a MSc thesis in Geography under the supervision of Drs Rodolphe Devillers (Geography) and Orland Hoeber (Computer Sciences). Part of a larger NSERC project, Cassandra’s thesis looked at designing and testing new methods for navigating through spatio-temporal data using temporal zooming and panning tools that she has tested in multitouch environments. Cassandra’s work was presented at the GIScience’12 conference and was submitted to nothing less than our flagship GIS journal: the International Journal of Geographic Information Sciences (IJGIS). Good luck for the future Cassandra!

Congratulation to René!

Congratulations to René Enguehard that has just submitted the final copy of his MSc thesis! René has worked on the geovisual analytics of fishing vessel movement data, as part of an NSERC-funded project led by Dr Orland Hoeber (MUN Computer Science). In addition to having been a great lab mate, René has been very productive, having presented his work at the 2011 GeoViz workshop in Hamburg, Germany, and has also having two journal papers currently under review. René will stay with us for some more months as a research assistant, working on other aspects of the same NSERC  project. Good job René!
