Expert guide

If you a member of the media looking for an expert to interview, the University of Waterloo can help you find researchers to comment. We maintain a database that lists Waterloo faculty and staff members who are willing to provide information, analysis, or a considered opinion on a wide range of topics.

You can search by name, by topic, or by department. Please contact the individual directly. If you don't find what you need in the database, and want to discuss a story idea or find an expert, please contact Waterloo’s media relations team.

The views and opinions expressed by experts do not necessarily reflect those of the University of Waterloo.
