Deepa Kundur

U of T researchers to receive more than $11.5 million in NSERC funding

A cyber attack on the Ukrainian power grid in the winter of 2015 left hundreds of thousands of people in the dark. 

Deepa Kundur, a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, is working to develop a system that prevents such an attack from crippling critical industries here. With Scott Sanner, an assistant professor of industrial engineering, and in collaboration with Hydro-Québec, Kundur is designing methodologies and algorithms to detect anomalous behaviour in the grid and isolate the problem before it spreads.

Diary from Ecuador: Keith Pardee on his team's trip to test a new 'better, faster, cheaper' diagnostic technology for Zika

Keith Pardee is an assistant professor at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy and the Canada Research Chair in Synthetic Biology in Human Health.

In March 2018, my lab team from the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy embarked on an adventure. We set off from Toronto and headed to Ecuador. The purpose of our trip was to kick off the first leg of a multi-stage project where we are testing an entirely new rapid diagnostic technology in three Latin American countries.
