Two Western Engineering professors receive Early Researcher Awards

Engineering professors, Kibret Mequanint (Chemical and Biochemical Engineering) and Denis O’Carroll (Civil and Environmental Engineering), have been awarded Early Researcher Awards.

The Early Researcher Award program is a key component of the province's research and innovation strategy, which aims to strengthen Ontario's economic advantage by helping to attract, retain and develop the best and brightest researchers. Each researcher receives $100,000 to undertake cutting-edge research and build their teams of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research associates.
