Richard Hughson - Kinesiology
Prof. Hughson is acclaimed by his colleagues and students, both former and present, for the creation of a research environment that both provides the best for, and demands the most of, the graduate students within the group. His impressive research facility attracts outstanding students from around the world, and upon graduation, disperses them just as widely. His ability to be “rigourous without being intimidating” as well as his nurturing a research environment where ideas are generated and challenged in a thorough and collegial manner are particular strengths noted by the many former students who supported his nomination. His close personal contact and impression on these students is evident in the extent of their close connection to him, and their words of utmost praise and respect, even years after graduation.
