Waterloo Engineering researchers have paired inexpensive wireless communication antennas with artificial intelligence (AI) to improve how doctors can detect bone fractures.

Led by Dr. Omar Ramahi, an electrical and computer engineering professor, the team has created a new system to detect bone fractures that is fast, accurate and safe.

Congratulations to electrical and computer engineering PhD students, Mingcheng He and Shisheng Hu. Both students, under the supervision of Professor Sherman Shen, have won prizes at the IEEE ComSoc Four Minute Thesis (4MT) competition held at the IEEE International Conference on Communications 2024 in Denver, Colorado in June. 

Congratulations to electrical and computer engineering PhD students, Zhixuan Tang, Shisheng Hu, and postdoctoral fellow, Conghao Zhou. Together, under the supervision of Professor Sherman Shen, they have won the Best Innovative Concept Project at the IEEE Toronto Workshop “Leaders of Tomorrow” for their work “Reconfiguration-Cost-Efficient Virtual Network Embedding in Satellite Networks.”

Congratulations to former PhD students, Mushu Li, Nan Cheng, Jie Gao, Yinlu Wang, and Lian Zhao, and Professor Sherman Shen for winning the IEEE Best Land Transportation Paper Award for their paper: “Energy-Efficient UAV-Assisted Mobile Edge Computing: Resource Allocation and Trajectory Optimization,” IEEE Trans Veh. Techn., Vol. 69, No. 3, pp. 3424-3438, February 2020.

As part of a recent Government of Canada announcement, seven University of Waterloo doctoral students were named recipients of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Vanier CGS). Two of those students are from elecctrical and computer engineering:

Jack deGooyer, Electrical and Computer Engineering, co-supervised by Dr. Michael Reimer and Dr. Peter Levine, is working on a research project titled “A 400kHz ultra-low noise readout integrated circuit for a novel metamaterial photodetector.”
Read more about deGooyer’s work.

Sarah Odinotski, Electrical and Computer Engineering, supervised by Dr. Michael Reimer, is working on a research project titled “lntraoperative glioblastoma margin detection using metamaterial-based optical detectors.”
Read more about Odinotski’s work.

Congratulations to electrical and computer engineering PhD student, Ahmed Elbaroudy! Ahmed’s paper was selected as winner of the North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2023) Best Journal Paper Award! The paper entitled “Observation of an abrupt 3D-2D morphological transition in thin Al layers grown by MBE on InGaAs surface,” was chosen by the NAMBE Advisory Board from papers presented at the 37th North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2023) and published in JVST A.

Today, fifty-four new Fellows were elected to the Canadian Academy of Engineering - two of those new Fellows are University of Waterloo electrical and computer engineering professors – professors Ladan Tahvildari and Alfred Yu.

The Academy's President, Dr. Soheil Asgarpour commented: “Over the past 37 years, Fellows of the Academy have provided engineering leadership in the fields of education, infrastructure, innovation, energy, transportation, and many more. New Fellows have been selected for their outstanding contributions to engineering in Canada and around the world and for their service as role models in their fields and to their communities.”

Electrical and computer engineering professor, Claudio Cañizares, has been elected Fellow of the Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering (CSEE) for his outstanding contributions in the field of electrical engineering science and technology. Founded in 1934 in Shanghai, the CSEE's members include over 120,000 individual engineers and over 1000 organizations.

New collaboration will allow quantum researchers to study effects of solar radiation on quantum computing

A new collaboration between researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo, SNOLAB near Sudbury, Ontario, and Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden has been awarded a new grant to investigate the impact of radiation and cosmic rays on quantum technologies.

This grant, “Advanced Characterization and Mitigation of Qubit Decoherence in a Deep Underground Environment,” sponsored by the Army Research Office, a directorate of the U.S Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, has been awarded to Dr. Chris Wilson, a faculty member at IQC and professor in Waterloo’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, alongside Dr. Jeter Hall, Director of Research at SNOLAB and adjunct professor at Laurentian University, and Dr. Per Delsing, professor at Chalmers University of Technology and director of the Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology.
