‘What if concrete could actually heal itself? It’s not so far-fetched. UVic engineer Rishi Gupta, who is Harsh Rathod’s PhD supervisor and HRG’s co-founder and chief technology officer, has been working on “smart concrete” research for nearly a decade. Using various fibre additives and crystalline waterproofing admixtures, his lab is working on concrete mixtures designed to be more resistant to cracking and to self-seal when cracks appear.’

The UVic Copyright and Scholarly Communications office would like to congratulate Dr. Zuomin Dong on his recent UVicNews article that highlights his important work …
‘Dong’s research, which will reduce the environmental impact and costs of marine traffic, is funded in part by a million-dollar donation by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, in conjunction with Seaspan. That funding supports the team’s [UVic’s Clean Transportation Research Team] development of the enabling technology and integrated modelling tools to transition marine vessels to optimized hybrid natural-gas / electric and pure electric propulsion systems.’

‘…a new Google project is highlighting an initiative led by UVic anthropologist Brian Thom and Indigenous languages teacher yutustanaat Mandy Jones (Snuneymuxw First Nation).
The “Celebrating Indigenous languages” Google Earth Voyager project is a curated set of high-quality stories published through Google Earth. It is available in 10 languages internationally and encompasses 55 Indigenous languages in 27 countries from Australia, India, Ecuador and Chile to Cameroon, Pakistan, Turkey and Finland.
And, thanks to yutustanaat, the new tool includes words, phrases, a proverb and songs in the Hul’q’umi’num’ language, as spoken by yutustanaat (pronounced “Yah-TUS-tuh-naught”).’
The Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office encourage you to explore this dynamic resource and to further read more of Brian Thom’s important work by visiting UVic’s institutional repository, UVicSpace.
Frances Stewart and Jason Fisher both adjunct assistant professors at UVic’s the School of Environmental Studies have recently published an exciting paper that..
