$26 million awarded to Waterloo research

Friday, September 8, 2017

A dozen Waterloo researchers will receive supplemental funding to support their research identified by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) as on the verge of a breakthrough.

The recipients of Discovery Accelerator Supplements (DAS) are among more than 150 researchers who will receive over $26 million to further their groundbreaking research. The awards announced today also include funding for Discovery and equipment grants.

The researchers chosen by NSERC for a DAS ($120,000 each) in addition to funding through the Discovery grants program are:

  • Giovanni Cascante (Civil and Environmental Engineering): Reliable nondestructive evaluation of damage in infrastructure and soil dynamic characterization using novel laser technology
  • David Clausi (Systems Design Engineering): Advanced intelligent computer vision for remote sensing scene interpretation
  • Krysztof Czarnecki (Electrical and Computer Engineering): Model-based synthesis and safety assurance of intelligent controllers of autonomous vehicles
  • Bianca Dittrich (Physics and Astronomy): Continuum limit, dynamics and holography in quantum gravity
  • Catherine Gebotys (Electrical and Computer Engineering): Side channel monitoring of embedded secure and safety critical devices in IoT
  • Christopher Godsil (Combinatorics and Optimization): Quantum walks and graph spectra
  • Arie Gurfinkel (Electrical and Computer Engineering): Automated software verification: foundations and applications
  • Florian Kerschbaum (David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science): Systems for computation on encrypted data
  • Kevin Musselman (Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics). Functional nanomaterials for ubiquitous electronic devices
  • Sriram Narasimhan (Civil and Environmental Engineering): Autonomous monitoring and decision-making system for bridge infrastructure
  • Rodolfo Pellizzoni (Electrical and Computer Engineering): Many-core platforms for time-critical systems
