"Throughout and Beyond the PhD: how to build a successful career?" by Jana Abou Ziki, Ph.D., University of Ontario Institute of Techonology
It is undoubtful that the road to obtain a PhD degree is challenging and requires tremendous hard work and commitment. But how to make the most of your PhD experience? How to prepare yourself to enter into the job market? And how to increase your chances of getting your dream job?
Dr. Abou Ziki’s talk will address these points while highlighting her experience in finding the right career path.
Jana Abou Ziki received her Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (under the supervision of Professor Wüthrich) from Concordia University, Canada (2014) after completing the B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering at Rafik Hariri University, Lebanon (2009). Her doctorate research developed the knowledge about an electrochemical glass micro-manufacturing technique called Spark assisted Chemical Engraving (SACE), and as a result this technique was transferred to industry. Her work got published in several journal and conference publications, as well as book chapters. She also co-authored with Professor Wüthrich the second edition of the book “Micromachining Using Electrochemical Discharge Phenomenon”. Shortly after receiving her PhD, she joined Laurentian University as a Master Lecturer in the Bharti School of Engineering. She was recently appointed as Assistant Professor at the University of Ontario Institute Of Technology. Dr. Abou Ziki’s current research interests involve developing rapid prototyping methods for precision manufacturing and surface engineering.
