On the heels of our last post, guess who else just landed a significant grant? That would be UWaterloo English’s Dr. Marcel O’Gorman, who has received a $40,000 award from through the John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). The intent of the award is to provide researchers with the foundational research infrastructure necessary to lead in their field. Dr. O’Gorman has received funding for a Critical Media Prototyping Suite, which will give our students, faculty, and collaborators access to a 3D printer, 3D scanner, laser cutter, interface design software, and kits for developing wearable computing and Internet of Things applications.
