CAROLYN EYLES HONOURED FOR SUPPORTING GRAD STUDENTS
Interdisciplinary Science professor Carolyn Eyles is the 2019 recipient of the President's Award for Excellence in Graduate Supervision for the Faculty of Science. Biology professor Juliet Daniel and Physics & Astronomy professor Kari Dalnoki-Veress were also nominated.
The award is hosted by McMaster's School of Graduate Studies and recognizes faculty members who demonstrate excellence in teaching, service to the campus community and beyond, outstanding supervision and non-academic support for graduate students.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to receive this award," says Carolyn. "However, my students are the ones who really should be receiving recognition as they have all been amazing individuals to supervise. I love being able to encourage them to develop the skills and attributes they feel are important to their future."
