The 2020 scholarship winner is Tyler Gamvrelis, a Master’s student in communications group (Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering) at the University of Toronto (U of T). Previously, Tyler studied Electrical and Computer Engineering through U of T’s Engineering Science program, with his undergraduate thesis in wireless networks solidifying his commitment to research. Outside of academia, Tyler has taken on lead design roles in numerous embedded systems projects, including an autonomous humanoid soccer robot and a physics experiment that flew in microgravity. Tyler’s goal is to join a research and development lab in the field of telecommunications and contribute useful results to both society and the scientific community.
Viet Nguyen, Charles Rousseau and David Farnes held a virtual meeting with Tyler to congratulate him and “present” the cheque. Here is a thank-you video from Tyler.
