Ten emerging and established researchers from across the University have been appointed York Research Chairs. The appointments are the first in a new program established to build, support and intensify the world-renowned research under way at the University.
Mike Daly of Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering, Lassonde School of Engineering, was awarded a Tier 2 York Research Chair in Planetary Science in recognition of his outstanding contribution to space-flight instrumentation research at York. The York Research Chair will enable Daly’s participation in NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission to the near-Earth asteroid Bennu and the return of Canada’s first sample of material from another solar system.
