Michel Fich received his Bachelor of Science degree (B.Sc.) in physics from the University of Waterloo in 1978. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1983 with a Ph.D. in astronomy. His work at Berkeley was primarily in the area of radio astronomy and involved observations with telescopes at both centimeter and millimeter wavelengths. A focus of this work was the use of radio interferometers to achieve the maximum spatial resolution possible.
David Yevick received the Bachelor of Arts degree (A.B.) in physics from Harvard University in 1974, the Master and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Princeton University in 1975 and 1977, respectively and the Docent degree from the department of theoretical physics, University of Lund in 1985.
Melanie C. W. Campbell is currently a professor in the department of physics, University of Waterloo and is cross appointed to the school of optometry. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical physics from the University of Toronto and a Master of Science degree in physics from the University of Waterloo. An interest in the optical properties of the eye led to a Ph.D. from the Australian National University awarded jointly by the John Curtin school for medical research and the research school of physical sciences.
Dr. B. Ralph Chou received a Bachelor of Science in astronomy from the University of Toronto in 1973, a Doctor of optometry degree from the University of Waterloo in 1979, and a Master degree of science in physiological optics from the University of Waterloo in 1982. He is currently an associate professor in the school of optometry at the University of Waterloo.
