EOAS PhD Student Evelyn Freres wins Data Speaks Competition at RFG

June 27, 2018

Evelyn Freres won the Data Speaks! storytelling competition at the Resources for Future Generations (RFG) conference in Vancouver last week (June 16-21).  Students were challenged to reimagine their research with a non-specialist audience in mind, and were judged on the accessibility of their research, their reasoning and their creativity.

Evelyn’s original abstract title “Can you really trust your neodymium isotopic ratios?” was revised to “Do you trust your data?”  In her video, Evelyn explains that her research aims to discover the limitations to acquiring precise and accurate data, which will in turn help other researchers “understand our planet in the best possible way.”
