I am so super, super excited and honored to have been chosen as the 2015 recipient of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science – NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship Supplement! It was an honor before to win an NSERC PDF, but to be recognized for my contributions to advancing women in science and my research interests is beyond amazing.
The winners of the L’Oreal Canada and L’Oreal-UNESCO awards (I am one of the only in pants!)!
The awards presentation was held in Ottawa, Ontario, at the French Embassy so I got to have my first visit to the nation’s capital (the National Gallery of Canada is fabulous!). Never did I imagine that I would get to go to an Embassy, so it was a real treat to meet and learn about the lives of diplomats and those who make decisions about funding at NSERC.
Art Deco and some fabulous marble!
Feels just like a Castle in France.
