Laurier researchers have successful year for NSERC Discovery Grants

Abstract:
This year, Laurierfs mathematics department did particularly well, with four faculty members awarded multi-year funding. Seventy percent of the departmentfs faculty now receive NSERC funding.

¡ Roderick Melnik ($120,000). Melnik's project is titled "Model coupling in multiscale mathematics and properties of nanostructures." He says: gMathematical models play an increasingly important role in all areas of human endeavours, ranging from our studies of climatic changes to our understanding of the fabric of life. Nanoscience takes a special place in these endeavours as it is profoundly changing our lives, revolutionizing research in sciences and engineering, enabling new diagnostics and treatments in medicine, and driving the most powerful wave of innovation in virtually all domains of human endeavours. But in order to use nanostructures efficiently, we need to know their properties. This project is devoted to the development of mathematical models for studies of these properties, and then to analyzing mathematical models with applications in physics, engineering, biology, and medicine."
