Megumi Harada, Mathematics & Statistics, was awarded a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Equivariant Symplectic and Algebraic Geometry. Her research explores the complex relationships of equivariant symplectic geometry, with other areas of mathematics, including equivariant algebraic geometry, hyperkahler geometry and geometric representation theory.
In his first column for The Globe and Mail, Martin Gibala, Kinesiology, outlines the state of knowledge about high intensity interval training (HIT). Gibala describes what we know and don’t know about the science around the benefits of the training regimen, where brief periods of vigorous exercise are alternated with short periods of recovery.
