Young scientist award to G. Ali!

Genevieve (Ali) was recently honoured as the winner of the 2014 Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) Young Scientist Award. This award is meant to recognize outstanding research contributions from Canadian geoscientists within 10 years of obtaining their PhD. The award was presented at the CGU/CSSS annual meeting in Banff, Alberta on May 6th, 2014. While delivering the citation, Jeff McDonnell (Professor of Hydrology and Associate Director of the Global Institute for Water Security) noted:

Genevieve is the best young Canadian scholar in the hydrological sciences that I am aware of. Despite her current Assistant Professor rank, Genevieve is already a leader in the field—promoting a new science of connectivity and leading many initiatives in Manitoba and internationally. […] Like her former advisor, I cannot think of a junior faculty member in Canada who is more deserving of recognition her outstanding scientific contributions. I see Genevieve developing further as a leader in Canada in the coming years. We need more role models like her, particularly for young women entering our science.
