Professor Suzanne Bouclin has been awarded the University of Ottawa’s prestigious Young Researcher of the Year Award for 2015. Prof. Bouclin won in the category of “Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences,” while Professor Karin Hinzer of the Faculty of Engineering won in the category of “Science, Engineering and Medicine.”
Since joining the Common Law Section at the University of Ottawa in 2011, Professor Suzanne Bouclin has made significant contributions in promoting equality and social justice. Her research explores the intersection of law, art and film, bridging the gap between law and cultural theory with special attention to women and people living in poverty. Just last month, her significant work in these areas earned her membership in the Global Young Academy, a prestigious international network of emerging scholars.
Karin Hinzer is an Associate Professor at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Canada Research Chair. She has made pioneering contributions to the experimental physics of quantum dots and has developed ground-breaking designs for multi-junction solar cells.
Each award is accompanied by $10,000 in research funding to cover research assistant salaries.
Congratulations to Prof. Bouclin and Prof. Hinzer!
