    Dr. Philip Jessop Interviewed on The Morning Show on CKWS

    Dr. Philip Jessop presenting at the IGnite seriesDr. Philip Jessop was on The Morning Show on CKWS discussing his inventive work on carbonated water as it applies to solving environmental problems. Dr. Jessop spoke at the University Relations and The Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute's IGnite: Research Stories to Inspire Generations series on March 28; this quarterly event focuses on showcasing the breadth of research happening across Queen’s University in a series of short talks. The talk gave Dr. Jessop an opportunity to elaborate to the public on his innovative research. Quoted from the talk and featured in the Gazette: “Society allows me to do research and it is only fair that in return I let society know what I’m doing,” he says. “I find that many people like to hear about new ways to reduce environmental harm.” One of his graduate students, Sarah Ellis, also had the opportunity to present her research. Afterwards, guests were able to see live demonstrations at the reception.
