Canada’s Brightest Research Stars use Advanced Networks

CANARIE and Cybera are both pretty thrilled to see that Dr. Steve Liang has been named Tech Futures-Microsoft Scholar in Open Sensor Web Systems. CANARIE funded this project through its Network-Enabled Platforms program, and Cybera is the project manager. Dr. Liang is the Principal Investigator and self-described “sensor web evangelist.” This award, which comes with $220,000, will enable Dr. Liang to work on an extension of his GeoCENS project, which enables biogeoscientists to search, visualize and share geographical datasets using a 3D virtual platform. Dr. Liang will be presenting GeoCENS at the BCNET Conference next week (Tuesday, May 3).

More information about Dr. Liang’s research can be found at sensorweb.geomatics.ucalgary.ca. You can also follow him on twitter: @steveliang.
