PechaKucha Night at KSU
The Office of Research hosted the inaugural PechaKucha Night at KSU in November 2021 during Research Week at KSU to recognize the outstanding research and scholarship conducted by faculty. PechaKucha, which means chi-chat in Japanese, is a storytelling-type event where the presenter shares 20 slides for 20 seconds per slide, guided primarily by graphics.
Nine presenters, one representing each of the academic colleges, shared their research through this unique format. Two awards were presented based on audience votes. The award for best overall scientific content was given to Mark Geil and the award for best overall artistic expression was given to Ebony Glover. Each winner received $2000 in professional development funds.
L to R: Amy Gruss, civil engineering; Ebony Glover, neuroscience; Sunay Mutlu, accounting; Maria Valero, information technology; Mark Geil, exercise science; Philip Kiernan, art history; Todd Pierson, biology; Ali Keyvanfar, construction management; and Tiffany Roman, instructional technology.
