Five UCalgary faculty members awarded Killam Annual Professorships – UCalgary

Individual recipients reflect on the role of their research teams and students in shaping their careers

Five professors who perform at the top of their field have been awarded University of Calgary Killam Annual Professorships for excellence in research and teaching. To hear it from the recipients though, it’s clear none of them consider their success a solitary accomplishment.

All five — Nigel Bankes, Dr. Herman Barkema, Dr. Warren Piers, Dr. Hude Quan, and Dr. Keith Yeates — reflected on the importance of their mentors, colleagues, and students in shaping their career paths and research programs, and expressed gratitude for their contributions.

“The dedication that our Killam Annual Professors show to their research teams and students does not come as a surprise,” says Dr. Andre Buret, interim vice-president (research) and chair of the University of Calgary Killam Selection Committee. “These individuals represent academic excellence at its finest — pursuit of new knowledge that improves peoples’ lives. They think about the big picture every day, and recognize that collaboration is what takes a research and teaching program to its highest level.”
