David Harris Smith, Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies & Multimedia, received the Ontario government’s most prestigious award for early career researchers – an award that recognizes their potential to become world-class innovators. Dr. Smith and his research team will develop a 3D virtual environment of the City of Hamilton that will help citizens visualize and participate in urban planning decisions through interactive social media. “The funding will help to train future leaders, while also expanding research that is vital to improving the quality of life of people,” explains Smith.  Read more about the Virtual Hamilton project in the Hamilton Spectator and the McMaster Daily News.
