26/11/2019: Prof. Morin receives the 2019 F.A.S Dean's award for excellence in scholarship in the senior category.
I spent the first 10 years of my career in a small town University that did not valorize, nor support, research. As someone passionate about research, I eventually decided to move to Australia for a more research-focused position. This was a true turning point in my career. However, after years away from my hometown of Montreal and far from family and friends, my wife and I eventually decided to come back home. This was primarily a family, not a professional, decision. Upon coming back to Montreal, we were, however, very surprised to see that in recent years, Quebec seemed to have taken a turn for the worse in electing a new conservative party, preying on people’s fears of anything different, and encouraging a return to xenophobic, nationalistic, close-minded values. In the midst of it all, Concordia University feels like an oasis where all forms of diversity are not only welcome but celebrated, and where high caliber research is truly supported and valued. Being nominated for this award is for me a form of recognition of having made the right decision in joining this University, a sign that any road, no matter how turbulent, can lead to good port, and an immense encouragement to keep on doing what I do best.
