Congratulations to Professor Ruben Zamar and Statistics PhD Student Andy Leung!


Professor Ruben Zamar and Dr. Saber Miresmailli, founder and CEO of Ecoation Innovative Solution Inc. (EIS), have been awarded an NSERC Engage Grant to fund a joint research project, which includes funding for a four-month internship for Statistics PhD student Andy Leung. The project involves Dr. Miresmailli's cutting-edge research on automatic (robot) sensing of different chemicals released by plants in response to pest infections. Dr. Miresemailli anticipates that the commercial application of this technology will help farmers in BC and elsewhere.

a place of mind, The University of British Columbia
