Electrical and computer engineering professors, Werner Dietl and Lan Wei, are recipients of Early Researcher Awards (ERA). The Early Researcher Awards program recognizes promising new researchers with $140,000 each to build a research team.
The Ontario government awarded funds to their projects:
Werner Dietl: Practical pluggable properties (P3) - Improving software reliability using gradual, inferable, and synthesizable types
Lan Wei: Cryogenic CMOS technology - Enabling low-cost, compact control of large-scale quantum computers
