International Day of Light Lecture – “Pivoting in photonics: a deep dive in between the worlds of industry, government & academia” by Dr. Madison Rilling

May 16 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

May 16th marks the International Day of Light, which highlights the central role played by light in our daily lives. It is a celebration of the enabling nature of photonics, and the many ways in which light-based technologies are making way for a better future. The same can be said about the scientific experts behind those technologies: they also can enable change in many different ways, whether behind or beyond the lab. In this talk, I will share my pivoting story and how I found I could best leverage my technical expertise & skillset in my new role at Optonique. When it comes to optics & photonics, Optonique is uniquely positioned to support industry, communicate with government, and build bridges with academia. Join us to learn & discuss about Optonique’s mission, and let’s celebrate together the ways in which the photonics community is changing the world! Speaker(s): Dr. Madison Rilling (elle | she/her), Room:MC603, McConnell Engineering building, 3480 University Street, H3A 0E9, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/313684
