We are very proud to announce that Anqi Xu, PhD candidate with Professor Gregory Dudek, Director of the Mobile Robotics Laboratory of CIM, won the very prestigious Vanier Scholarship in May 2009.

Anqi is the proud recipient of a Vanier Scholarship, fundable over three years to support his research, which aims to improve human-robot interaction through the development of a gesture-based communication system for marine robotics.

The Vanier Scholarship is awarded to 12 top doctoral students in Canada in support of their world-class research. Anqi was only one of two 2 PhD students to receive this award at McGill this year. Anqi also won the best Summer Project award from the faculty of Science for his prior Summer NSERC work and associated presentation.
