Despite the challenging year, three of our graduate students successfully defended their doctoral theses in 2021. Please join us in congratulating each of them on this accomplishment! Their posters listed below include links to their full-length theses on the Scholarship at Western website.

Since fall 2016, Rotman doctoral thesis posters have been presented to each of our resident members following their defence. Styled to look like our event series posters, a framed copy of each poster is also kept and hung up in the Institute. A gallery of these posters was recently published on our website & can be seen on our Doctoral Thesis Posters page. Browse through the posters to learn a bit about the breadth of research completed by our graduate students.

We’ve also recently updated information on our website for prospective graduate student members. If you’re interested in applying or know someone else who may be, please visit our new Graduate Student Membership page.
