Smart Campus at McGill University
Dr. Wachowicz is co-applicant to the Myko-LEED PDG SSHRC application, being led by Prof. Richard Janda from McGill University. The partnership assembles a unique and specialized inter-disciplinary team composed of members at McGill University with expertise in multiple dimensions of sustainability and members at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) with expertise in Big Data and Internet of Things. The partnership also links with collaborators at the International Reference Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services (CIRAIG), University of Münster in Germany, Memorial University and CNRS/Berkman Center of the Harvard Law School. Compass Group Canada, in conjunction with McGill Food and Dining Services, is our private sector partner for gathering food and nutrition data, and the Montreal Climate Coalition is our community partner for the purpose of testing applicability of our platform beyond the campus. This project will demonstrate how IoT data can be used in smart campus to deploy mathematical models to predict future behaviour based on available datasets.
