UBC water sustainability expert Mark Johnson has been awarded the university’s Charles A. McDowell award for excellence in pure or applied scientific research by a young faculty member.

Johnson holds a Canada Research Chair in Ecohydrology, his research seeks to develop more sustainable water and land use practices and urban systems. He is an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.

Allan Bertram (Chemistry), Jayachandran Kizhakkedathu (Chemistry) and Malabika Pramanik (Mathematics) were recognized with UBC Killam Research Prizes. Kai Chan (Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability) was selected for a UBC Killam Research Fellowship.

Winners of Faculty Research Awards were selected by UBC’s Faculty Research Award Committee, which spans arts and humanities, applied science, science, and medicine. Each spring, the Office of the Vice President Research hosts an awards reception to recognize outstanding UBC researchers. This year the reception will be held on April 17, 2018.
