Bipasha Goyal (Year 3 EngSci) is working on a new tool to help defend against COVID-19.  The smart UV lamp she is designing under the supervision of Professor Joyce Poon (ECE, EngSci 0T2) will use sensors for optimal disinfection in health care settings.

The innovative system, called LumineSense, is one of dozens of student-led projects funded through Mitacs Research Training Awards.

To learn how Goyal plans to integrate smart sensors and algorithms into the device, read the full story in the U of T Engineering News.
