Researcher Profiles


Students at The University of Winnipeg have the unique opportunity to do hands-on research that would typically be reserved for graduate level students at larger institutions.  A number of our undergraduate and graduate students also co-author or are first authors on publications to scholarly journals. Students from all faculties present their work at national and international conferences.

Meet some of our profs who are engaged in meaningful research, and the students they are mentoring.
