Concordia research accelerated
Date:6/22/2011

Montreal, June 22, 2011 Two Concordians have received prestigious awards from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

Nadia Bhuiyan and Yves Glinas are the recipients of NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplement (DAS) awards for 2011-12.

Bhuiyan, a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and associate director of the Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation, specializes in operations management and new product development. She researches and teaches "lean manufacturing" a business model that examines ways to reduce waste in effort, personnel and resources from product conception through manufacturing and sales.

She has shown that when product development is executed according to the lean philosophy, major benefits are reaped in the manufacturing phase. A product designed for lean manufacturing will lead to reduced waste, lower cost, and shorter time to convert from an idea to a marketable product.

Glinas, a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, examines organic matter found in natural environments. An NSERC DAS award will allow him to study and help conserve coastal aquatic ecosystems specifically estuaries or transition zones between terrestrial and oceanic systems. Estuaries are highly productive ecosystems with a distinct biogeochemistry of sediments.

He will soon undertake a five-day expedition with his graduate students and research colleagues on board a research ship on the St. Lawrence estuary. The goal is to collect samples and analyze their microbial composition and metabolic properties. This work will advance the understanding of the complex structure of sediments and contribute to the development of environmental protection plans for estuaries, lakes and oceans.

NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplement awards $120,000 provided over three years are granted through competition to further enhance resea
