Ravinder Singh, an Indo-Canadian, has been awarded prestigious Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarships for Intellectual Property research.
Singh, who was born in Haryana, will receive a Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS) valued at USD 35,000 a year for 36 months.
The CGS doctoral scholarships are offered to top-ranking successful applicants to Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council's (SSHRC)annual doctoral award competition.
Singh is conducting research on privacy protection in trans-border data flows and said that his critical focus is to unravel the embedded confrontational regulatory dynamics of the existing international regimes, as well as to explore an alternative regulatory policy framework better equipped to address the challenges of globalization.
Singh commended Professor Michael Geist's supervision and said it has been fundamentally constructive and illuminating.
