Understanding circadian rhythms

Researchers are using mathematical models to better understand the effects of disruptions like daylight savings time, working night shifts, jet lag or even late-night phone scrolling on the body’s circadian rhythms. 

Today, the University of Waterloo announced a 5G and beyond mobile network technology consortium to develop secure 5G mobile networks and improve Canada’s security and defence. The group is funded by the Department of National Defence (DND) through its Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program. A team of computer scientists at Waterloo is leading the $1.5 million multi-partner consortium.

Researchers in applied mathematics are part of a team developing technologies that use acoustic waves to target and destroy cancerous tumours.

While doctors have used low-intensity ultrasound as a medical imaging tool since the 1950s, experts at the University of Waterloo are using and extending models that help capture how high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) can work on a cellular level.

What's in a developer's name?

Resa Nadri, Gema Rodriguez Perez, and Mei Nagappan

Research conducted by recent computer science master’s graduate Reza Nadri, recent postdoctoral researcher Gema Rodríguez-Pérez and their supervisor Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Mei Nagappan found that the perceived race and ethnicity of a developer — based on just their user name — can affect how the developer’s contributions to open source software projects are evaluated.
