ISM CREATE students rock DASP conference

Eight students from the International Space Mission Training program participated in the 2019 DASP conference held in February at the University of Saskatchewan. The week long conference featured the leading researchers from across Canadian Universities and industry. A highlight was the student session which included presentations from 24 Masters and Phd candidates. ISM CREATE student Leon Olifer took the first place prize with his talk “On the Signatures of Magnetopause Shadowing Losses in the Van Allen Radiation Belts of the Earth” and Draven Galeschuck took the 3rd place prize for his presentation on the “Optimization of ICEBEAR analysis and interferometry”. Congratulations to all the students who delivered exceptional presentations of their research.
