The University of Ottawa has been awarded three new Canada Research Chairs (CRC) that will expand the scope of research in the fields of health and the environment. Once of them, the Canada Research Chair in Science and Society, has been awarded to Assistant Professor Kelly Bronson.
Dr. Bronson studies the effects of digitizing traditional sectors, such as agriculture and mining. Her research aims to foster the responsible governance of emergent and controversial technologies and to promote justice and equity in Canada’s food and energy systems.
“The attribution of these chairs will allow brilliant researchers to continue to pursue important research issues,” said Sylvain Charbonneau, vice-president, research at the University. “Thanks to support from the Canada Research Chairs program, these professors will advance our knowledge of topics that affect the daily lives of Canadians.”
Dr. Bronson will give a speech on November 15 at 10 am at the lobby of the Advanced Research Complex as part of the Canada Research Chair Announcement. Learn more about the announcement.
Congratulations Professor Bronson!
