Christine Wilson, Physics & Astronomy, has been named a Distinguished University Professor, the University’s highest honour. This title is only given to those professors who achieve the highest level of excellence in teaching, learning and research; no more than two per cent of all full-time faculty can hold the title at any one time. The honour will be conferred upon Wilson and the other four new recipients during the spring Convocation ceremonies.
