The entire Waterloo philosophy community congratulates Janet on this exceptional accomplishment and looks forward to learning the results of her very promising research project!

I’m thrilled to have won a CGS award to support my PhD research! The award will allow me to focus on my dissertation project on facilitating and improving two-way methods of communication between scientific communities and relevant publics. I’d like to thank all of those who helped with my many, many drafts, and a special thanks to John Turri, Katie Plaisance, and Carla Fehr for their help and support.--Janet Michaud
