Dr. Hassan wins IEEE Best Paper Award

On December 18, 2018,  University of Guelph Assistant Professor of Engineering Mohamed Hassan received the IEEE RTSS Best Paper Award for his paper, “On the Off-chip Memory Latency of Real-Time Systems: Is DDR DRAM Really the Best Option?” In this paper, Dr. Hassan makes the case for an alternative type of off-chip memory to the ones most commonly used in real-time systems for health care devices, automobiles, and smart power grids.

Tiny Particles, Big Impact

Non-toxic, eco-friendly nanoparticles can improve health and personal care products.

Synthetic, man-made particles 1/5000th the width of a human hair (i.e., nanoparticles) are ending up down our drains and in our water sources. Nanoparticles are potentially more toxic than larger “chunks” of the same substance because they are more easily absorbed into our bodies, but the full impact that they have on our health is unknown. Nonetheless, non-toxic alternatives are needed.
