In six short years, Lin Tan has already proven herself an ingenious researcher poised to rank among the elite in the field of software engineering. Her research focuses on improving software dependability, addressing the software bug problem at every stage of a bug’s life-cycle by creating techniques to avoid, predict, prevent and fix bugs.
ECE's Professor Ladan Tahvildari has been elected a Member-at-large for the IEEE Technical Council of Software Engineering (TCSE). The IEEE Computer Society is the world’s largest professional organization devoted to computer science and the Technical Council of Software Engineering (TCSE) is the voice of software engineering within the IEEE and the Computer Society.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) recorded an interaction between light and matter 10 times larger than previously seen. The strength of the interaction between photons and a qubit was so large that it opens the door to a realm of physics and applications unattainable until now.
ECE's Mohamed El Badawe, PhD candidate supervised by Professor Omar Ramahi, has won a 2016 Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) Libyan Student Excellence Award. When he was awarded his scholarship through the Libyan-North American Scholarship Program, Mohamed decided focus his research on enabling communities to better utilize their resources and develop a renewable energy source to replace Libya’s dependence on fossil fuels.
