Two Water Institute members honoured by the Royal Society of Canada

Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Two Water Institute members have been honoured by the Royal Society of Canada (RSC). Anita Layton, Canada 150 Research Chair in Mathematical Biology and Medicine, Professor of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Pharmacy and Biology, and Aiping Yu, University Research Chair, Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, are among 156 other Canadian researchers elected by their peers for outstanding scholarly, scientific, and artistic achievement announced recently by the RSC.

Anita  

New Royal Society of Canada Fellow

Anita Layton (Department of Applied Mathematics) is an internationally acclaimed authority and leading researcher in mathematical medicine and biology. She has solved long-standing problems in scientific computing and renal physiology. She is recognized for her pioneering contributions to computational methods for fluidstructure interaction problems, and to mathematical modeling of mammalian physiology and pathophysiology, including the first sexspecific models of kidney physiology and blood pressure regulation.

Aiping

Winner of the Rutherford Memorial Medal in Chemistry  for outstanding research in chemistry

Aiping Yu (Department of Chemical Engineering) is an outstanding researcher and emerging leader dedicated to converting fundamental laboratory discoveries in nanotechnology and 2D materials to commercial products. Her research has led to a more cost-effective graphene material and Li-ion supercapacitors based on graphene sponge and MXene that are comparable to batteries but with significantly reduced charge time. She is poised to make more exciting contributions to next generation energy storage devices.

The new class of 2022 and award winners will be recognized at the Celebration of Excellence & Engagement (COEE) in Calgary, November 23 to 26.
