Each year we pick a small team of researchers—at least one from each of Ontario’s universities—to participate directly in the Research Matters initiative. Researchers are chosen for the excellence and variety of their research, as well as for their enthusiasm for engaging with non-academic audiences. These researchers participate in public events across the province, sit down with government and business leaders, and take part in other Research Matters activities. We hope, as you get to know them, that you discover something you didn’t know before about Ontario university research. You never have to look far to find the unexpected.
