Professor Boyd's research aims to exploit recent advances in nonlinear optics and quantum optics. The field of quantum nonlinear optics (QNLO) lies at the intersection of fundamental physics, applied physics, and engineering. Nonlinear optics deals with situations in which a light beam can modify its own propagation by changing the optical properties of a material through which it passes. It is usually associated with intense light fields, but quantum nonlinear optics takes these effects to a new level by using nonlinear interactions to control very weak light containing only a few photons, or even a single photon.
Professor Morand-Ferron's research will help better understand how cognition (learning, memory and decision-making) is shaped by selective environments. Her research focuses on avian foraging and social behaviour, and is primarily based on experiments in the field, as well as captive studies and comparative methods. She uses an integrated approach that draws upon behavioural ecology, cognitive ecology and evolutionary ecology.

DISTRACT: cooperative distributed target in multi-tier heterogeneous wireless sensor networks (WSN)
Thanks to advances in sensor device technology, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can now process sensed data locally to extract relevant information, collaborate with other sensors on an application-specific task, and thus provide information about the monitored events. These networks can be used in all sorts of applications, ranging from battlefield monitoring and environmental surveillance to health care. However, unstable tracking performance is still an issue. Professor Boukerche uses a novel approach to optimize performance and significantly reduce target tracking errors.
Hi-Fit: High fidelity telepresence over best effort networks
High Definition Telepresence (HDTP) involves capturing a scene, typically one involving users at an actual physical location, such as an office, classroom or meeting room. Despite advances in HDTP systems, they are still inaccessible to mainstream markets because their hardware and software requirements are quite demanding. Professor Shirmohammadi's research aims to design and implement a platform that can be used to transmit HDTP over best-effort networks. He is tackling a number of challenges related to processing, integrating and streaming HD video, 3D video, and multiview video in order to achieve HD 3D/multiview telepresence.
