The new scholars were feted at a luncheon last week where they had the chance to outline the scope of their research and thank Carswell, a pioneer in the design and development of lidar technology, and his family for their generosity.
The Carswell Scholar award will give the third class of Carswell Scholars an opportunity to delve further into their research, from self-driving cars to computer vision.
Meet the five new Lassonde School of Engineering Carswell Scholars
Rezaul Karim of the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science program, under the supervision of Associate Professor Richard Wildes, will focus his research on computer vision, including the application of deep learning and scene understanding, with semantic segmentation, action recognition and visual tracking.
Seyed-Mohammad Hosseini of the Earth & Space Science & Engineering program, under the supervision of Associate Professor Gunho Sohn, will look into developing an application programming interface.
Parham Mohammadi of the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science program, under the supervision of Associate Professor John Lam, will research power electronics and electrical machinery to create new SiC/GaN-based power electronics converter modules with advanced machine learning-based control to help facilitate energy extraction from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.
Saba Miri of the Civil Engineering program, under the supervision of Professor Satinder Kaur Brar, is researching the bioremediation of industrial chemicals such as p-xylene, an aromatic hydrocarbon used in the manufacturing of things such as PET plastic bottles and polyester fibre.
Mingfeng Yuan of the Earth & Space Science & Engineering program, under the supervision of Professor Jinjun Shan, will focus his research on self-driving cars.
