Dr. Herbert H. Tsang is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computing Science at Trinity Western University. His research interests are in the broad areas of bioinformatics/biomedical engineering, scientific visualization, signal processing, education technologies, and mobile application development. Dr. Tsang’s received grants from all three Canadian Government research funding agencies: the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). In addition, Professor Tsang received support from M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust and Mitacs.
Dr. Tsang has created a computational framework that will help to answer some of the hypothetical “what if” questions in the event when public safety is under threat. When creating this framework, he used an interdisciplinary approach where he combined and explored research by social and computing scientists. This framework allows him to understand individual and group dynamics during disasters and emergency situations.
Currently, Dr. Tsang is a Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Senior Member of Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) with the province of British Columbia, Canada.
