This week we mark the retirement of Professor Mario Gauthier after 30 years of service as an accomplished faculty colleague. Over his career he has been an internationally recognized expert in arborescent polymers, training approximately 40 graduate students, close to 100 undergraduates and publishing over 170 articles. He has served many functions within the Department and across the University, and we are especially grateful for his time as both Grad Officer and Associate Chair, Graduate and Research Programs. He will continue his research program at Waterloo over the months to come, and he will always have a home with us in this Department.
Please join us in congratulating Mario for his many contributions and distinguished career and wishing him well on his future.
