Physics Professor Robert Mann has a knack for inspiring a sense of wonder and curiosity about the universe, helping students find their passion, and working hard to nurture that passion. He works tirelessly and effectively to help his students make a successful start in their careers.
He has supervised 18 postdoctoral fellows, 39 doctoral students, 28 Master’s students, and has kept track of virtually every one of them. Of particular note are the numbers of students who return to Waterloo to continue their studies or endeavours with him, after experiencing research environments elsewhere.
The quality of Mann’s graduate supervision goes hand-in-hand with his excellence as an educator in general. In 2010, he was awarded the University of Waterloo Distinguished Teacher Award.
Mann has been a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy for 27 years. He is an internationally recognized theoretical physicist with more than 300 publications - a remarkable feat in his field, and also an extremely active graduate supervisor. He tries to provide as many opportunities as possible to help graduate students enter the field.
Congratulations Professor Mann on this award!
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
