Two researchers are accelerating their postdoctoral work at Waterloo Engineering backed by a fellowship launched last year.
Anwar Jaber and Milad Nazarahari are each receiving $75,000 annually for two years from the AMTD Waterloo Global Talent Postdoctoral Fellowship established with a $3 million donation from Calvin Choi (BA ’01), chairman of the board of AMTD Group.
Last week, Jaber joined Waterloo’s School of Architecture where she’s pursuing her research into how architecture plays an important part in cities facing political transitions and extreme conditions, such as violent political and ethnonational conflicts.
Nazarahari became part of Mechanical and Mechatronics Professor Arash Arami’s lab at the beginning of this month to continue work on developing affordable and accessible technology for stroke patients in Canada.
His research involves incorporating intelligent robots and biofeedback to provide efficient and accessible post-stroke upper extremity therapy.
