Research Minutes Contest Winners

Congratulations to Essam Seddik and Carmina Angelica Pérez Romero, whose one minute videos transformed their complex research into compelling visual "stories" that will help viewers appreciate how fault detection happens in our vehicles, and better understand the intricate science that determines how a single cell becomes a person.

There were seven submissions to the Research Minutes contest -- you can watch them all on YouTube here -- but only two videos were chosen as winners. Graduate students Essam Seddik and Carmina Angelica Pérez Romero each took home a $500 prize for their work.

Fault Identification & Detection in Vehicles - Essam Seddik

This video is a summary of Essam Seddik's M.Sc. thesis, which Essam is pursuing under the supervision of Professor Saeid Habibi, Department of Mechanical Engineering. Essam's research takes place in the Center for Mechatronics and Hybrid Technology (CMHT) lab at the McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC).
