Congratulations to Frazer Seymour who has recently been awarded the Co-op Student of the Year Award. Frazer has been working as a co-op student with RightMesh.io with Dr. Jason Ernst since January, 2017.
I first met Frazer when he was enrolled in my CIS2170 class several years ago. Shortly after that, he began working with me and Dr. Denis Nikitenko as an Undergraduate Research Assistant, exploring sonification and gesture control devices to improve the educational experience of visually impaired students studying mathematics and statistics. Frazer has also been featured by the CBC for his work developing tools to assist families dealing with dementia.
Most recently, Frazer has been a part of the community-led eNuk research team that is working to develop, implement, and test a mobile mesh network in Rigolet, Nunatsiavut using technology developed by RightMesh. The mesh network will be used to improve and support the collection of health and environment data that have been identified by the community as necessary to manage and adapt to the impacts of Climate Change.
Congratulations Frazer! Job well done.
