What’s it like to be a Master’s student at Queen’s?

Cameron Giglio is working on his Master’s of engineering at Queen’s. He’s exploring graphite exfoliation as part of his studies with the Docoslis/Kontopoulou lab group. It’s research at the frontier of how scientists, engineers and manufacturers make and use graphene, the super-material that’s stronger, lighter, more flexible, and more conductive than steel. The impact on form and capability of virtually every manufactured thing we use in our daily lives will likely be huge when graphene becomes a ubiquitous material. It will change the world. How did Cameron choose to pursue a graduate degree? What’s it like to be a Master’s student at Queen’s? Watch this video and find out.
