加拿大皇家学会增选81位新会士
3位华人科学家杨恩辉、卓敏、鲍晓毅入选科学院

【科学网综合报道】近日,加拿大皇家学会(The Royal Society of Canada,RSC)增选了81位新会士。其中入选科学院的有3位华人科学家,他们是:应用科学与工程部的杨恩辉(YANG, En-hui)、生命科学部的卓敏(ZHUO, Min),和数学与物理科学部的鲍晓毅(Xiaoyi, Bao)。另有一位华人入选社会科学院的社会科学部,他是加拿大萨斯喀彻温大学社会学系的李胜生(LI, Peter)
 

杨恩辉1986年毕业于华侨大学,并获得南开大学和美国南加州大学(University of Southern California)博士学位。现为加拿大滑铁卢大学电子和计算机工程系教授,曾创建Slipstream Data公司。他的研究领域包括多媒体数据压缩,编码与调制,信息理论和数字通信等。
 

卓敏1985年获中国科学技术大学生物系学士学位,其后考入中国科学院上海生理研究所攻读研究生,转博后前往美国依阿华大学药理系联合培养,于1992年获该校博士学位。现为加拿大多伦多大学生理学系教授,他的主要研究方向为:痛觉传递的中枢可塑性及其突触分子机制在脑健康和疾病中的作用。
 

鲍晓毅1987年获中国科学院安徽光学精密机械研究所光学专业博士学位后,赴国外深造,分别在美国堪萨斯州立大学、德国马普量子光学研究所与雷根斯堡大学、英国斯特拉斯克莱德大学、英国肯特郡大学工作和学习过。现任加拿大渥太华大学物理系教授。她取得的国际公认学术成就主要:基于布里渊损耗机制的分布式光纤传感器,同时测量应变和温度的高空间分辨率检测技术,保障结构安全的分布式布里渊传感器,利用布里渊散射使光变慢的方法及光通信系统性能劣化的补偿技术。
 
以下是加拿大皇家科学院网站对他们的点评:
 
杨恩辉(滑铁卢大学)
YANG, En-hui – Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo
En-hui Yang is an international leader in source coding, a branch of information theory dealing with how to efficiently encode information for transmission, storage, and processing. A recipient of many awards including the 2007 Ernest C. Manning Award of Distinction and an IEEE Fellow, he has made profound contributions to source coding by introducing fundamental source coding theory, solving long-standing open problems in source coding, inventing state-of-the-art lossless and lossy multimedia encoding algorithms, and transforming research results and coding algorithms into practice, which now impact on the daily life of tens of millions people worldwide in over 130 countries.
 
卓敏(多伦多大学)
ZHUO, Min – Department of Physiology, University of Toronto
Professor Zhuo is internationally recognized for his numerous contributions that have revolutionized our understanding of the mechanisms underlying pain and memory. He is the first Michael Smith Chair in Neuroscience and Mental Health, and a CRC Chair Tier I in pain and cognition. He has published over a hundred original, peer-reviewed papers and his scientific articles have appeared regularly in journals such as Nature, Science, PNAS, Nature Neuroscience and Neuron. His research forms the basis for novel therapeutic approaches that will revolutionize the management of pain, addiction and mental illness.
 
鲍晓毅(渥太华大学)
BAO, Xiaoyi – Department of Physics, University of Ottawa
Dr. Xiaoyi Bao has made exceptional contributions in distributed Brillouin sensors and their applications to civil structures as well as dynamic impairment emulator for evaluation and design of high speed communications systems. Her pioneering efforts on diagnosing the health of structures connects measured physical parameters with the status of the civil structures, which is instrumental in preventing the collapse of steel and concrete structures. She is making outstanding contributions not only to the development of the sensing technology but also to the discipline of physics in general.
