PREAs help build Western research teams

Seventeen University of Western Ontario researchers have received Premier’s Research Excellence Awards (PREA) to recruit graduate students and post-doctoral fellows for their research teams. Each researcher will receive up to $100,000 from the Ontario government and up to $50,000 from the University.

Winners Include::
Zhifeng Ding, Chemistry: Ding’s research looks at the development and application of nanoscale tools, such as specialized microscopes to study microscopic activity in single living cells and semiconductor nanostructures.

Martin Müser, Applied Mathematics and Physics: Muser’s research involves investigating materials behaviour at very small scales. By teaching the computer the properties of individual atoms and having the computer simulate the motion of the atoms, he will tackle numerous questions related to nanotechnology.
