Two MIE PhD candidates returned from the 2022 CSME International Congress with awards for their research presentations. 

Michael Mohan, supervised by Prof. Edmond Young, is the recipient of the Best Presentation Award at the Microtechnology and Nanotechnology Symposium for his presentation titled "TANDEM: biomicrofluidic systems with transverse and normal diffusional environments for multidirectional signaling."

“I was very fortunate this year to attend the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) International Congress and benefit from the depth and breadth of research across all subdisciplines of Mechanical Engineering," says Mohan. "It is an honor to be recognized with the “Best Presentation Award” at the Microtechnology and Nanotechnology Symposium, and I’m glad that our work stood out amongst the plethora of excellent work presented here."

Josh Palumbo, supervised by Prof. Sanjeev Chandra, won the Best Presentation Award at the Heat Transfer Symposium for his presentation titled "Experimental Investigation of Topologically Optimized Mini-Channel Heat Sinks for Reduced Temperature Non-Uniformity."

“The CSME congress was an excellent opportunity to see outstanding research from Canadian engineering programs. It was an honour to have the chance to represent the Centre for Advanced Coating Technologies (CACT) and showcase our novel liquid-cooled cold plate designs on an international stage," says Palumbo. "My work focuses on using thermal spray to disrupt current thermal management solutions in the consumer electronics and electric vehicle markets. I’m looking forward to continuing to share our progress as we continue to push the boundaries of liquid cooling.”
