The researchers named in the announcements are:

  • Chris Eliasmith (Systems Design Engineering & Philosophy) – CRC advancement from Tier 2 to Tier 1 in Theoretical Neuroscience ($1.4 million over seven years). Eliasmith was also awarded $69,965 through CFI’s JELF for Computational and Robotic Infrastructure for Large-Scale Neural Simulation.
  • Raafat Mansour (Electrical and Computer Engineering) – Renewed Tier 1 CRC in Micro and Nano Integrated Radio Frequency (RF) Systems ($1.4 million over seven years)
  • Catherine Rosenberg (Electrical and Computer Engineering) – Renewed Tier 1 CRC in the Future Internet ($1.4 million over seven years)

Additionally, two other University of Waterloo researchers received funding:

  • Laura Hug (Biology) – New Tier 2 CRC in Environmental Microbiology ($500,000 over five years). Assistant professor Hug was also awarded $50,000 through CFI’s JELF for Microbial Diversity and Function in Contaminated Sites.
  • Janusz Pawliszyn (Chemistry) – Renewed Tier 1 CRC in New Analytical Methods and Technologies ($1.4 million over seven years)
