Nathan Mountain

Environmental Geography graduate Nathan Mountain presented his research poster entitled “Volume Dependent Fissioning in Planaria” four years ago. The experience gave him the confidence he needed to take his poster to a larger conference in Washington, DC.

He also had a great item to add to his CV.

“Participating in the event three years ago helped me get into graduate school,” says Mountain, who has graduated from the Master of Environmental Science/Studies Program at Nipissing University. Nathan completed his Masters thesis under Dr. April James, Canada Research Chair in Watershed Modeling and Analysis. “I got a taste of academic research – and I really enjoyed it. I knew I wanted to continue with it.”

Nathan’s suggestion for a great poster: “Make it concise but self-explanatory. Judges will want to have all the key information. Their discussion with you will be for the extras.”

For an idea of past abstracts for posters presented see the conference programs.
