ECE Outstanding Emerging Researcher Honoured by Principal

News

May 30, 2018:  Professor Odile Liboiron-Ladouceur: Paving the way for future experts in the computing industry. 

At the May 2018 Engineering Convocation ceremony, Professor Liboiron-Ladouceur received the Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Emerging Researchers.  Her research focuses on the use of photonic technologies towards data communications within computing platforms and communication systems. This research makes an impact on the performance and energy efficiency of modern computing applications, like live media streaming, cloud computing and search engine speed. Computer platforms can be quite large and need hundreds of thousands of servers connected together to process information quickly and efficiently. Professor Liboiron-Ladouceur’s work specifically enhances the communications between those servers because many computing applications used today require high amount of data processing.

Odile Liboiron-Ladouceur is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, a Tier II Canada Research Chair, and leader of McGill’s top-notch Photonic DataCom laboratory.
