A first experience with scientific research sparks newfound interest for an undergraduate student
After completing rigorous university courses, an honours research project, and many hours of volunteer work, undergraduate student Libny Pierre-Louis wrapped up her bachelor’s degree with remarkable academic results, a place in medical school, and a growing interest in scientific research.
A virtual internship for promising mathematics students
Two American students, who have personal ties to Canada, received funding from the Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program (FUSRP) to work on a research project proposed by uOttawa Professor Hadi Salmasian, which linked representation theory and combinatorics.
Communicating securely underwater – a quantum solution
To many, the study of underwater quantum communication can seem overwhelming and rather puzzling. However, for Felix Hufnagel, a former MSc (now PhD) student at the University of Ottawa, it is in this complex field of physics that he excels.
Demonstrating Secure Underwater Quantum Communication
After completing a bachelor’s and master’s degree at the University of Ottawa, Alicia Sit continues to contribute to impactful research while pursuing a PhD with her supervisor, Professor Ebrahim Karimi.
Advocating for equitable teaching in the science community
Jacky Deng, a PhD student in the Flynn Research group, is combining his strong scientific background and his interest in social justice to address the inequalities faced by underrepresented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Unlocking the incredible potential of plant biology
As scientists around the world worked on research and development of an effective vaccine for COVID-19, Mina and her colleagues launched a novel research initiative focused on developing an edible vaccine for the disease.
While working as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor David Bryce, Vijith Kumar built on his research experience in supramolecular chemistry by exploring organic crystal engineering with novel non-covalent interactions such as chalcogen and tetrel bonding.
