Congratulations to our Faculty

April 23rd, 2018

Seven of our faculty members applied for funding to develop their research programs from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada this year, and all 7 were successful. Prof. Serdar Yüksel also received an ‘accelerator’ supplement with his grant, reserved for faculty with superior research programs who show strong potential to become international leaders in their field.

Prof. Greg Smith received an award from the Wallenberg Foundation and will spend the next academic year at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

Profs. Serdar Yuksel, Devon Lin and Bahman Gharesifard are working with the new Fields Centre for Quantitative Analysis and Modeling. This centre was created by the Fields Institute with an injection of $4,000,000 from the Ontario Government. One of the first recipients of the new funding will be the Chemical Process Mathematics Lab (CPML) related to chemical process modeling, control, optimization and data which will be located at Queen’s, with collaboration from researchers at Waterloo, McMaster and Ryerson. The grant can be used to fund conferences and graduate students.
