Two researchers at Waterloo Engineering will receive more than $240,000 through a federal program to provide the tools and equipment needed for them to become leaders in their fields.
Sushanta Mitra, MNT Lab founder, WIN Executive Director and a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, is in line for $150,000 for infrastructure for work to understand how drops wet surfaces, knowledge that is key to the discovery and development of new materials.
The funding was announced today by Kirsty Duncan, the federal minister of science and sport, as part of a $39-million commitment through the John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) for 251 researchers at 43 universities.
