Congratulations, Jin-me!

Fantastic news: the SCA's Jin-me Yoon was named a Fellow to The Royal Society of Canada (RSC), which is among Canada’s highest academic honours. Congratulations, Jin-me!

Jin-me joins SFU’s Fiona Brinkman (Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry) and Richard Lockhart (Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science) as new Fellows, as well as Hugo Cardoso (Department of Archaeology) and Deanna Reder (Department of First Nations Studies and English), who were named as College Members.

The RSC was established under an Act of Parliament in 1883 as Canada’s National Academy. Its primary objective is to promote research and learning in the arts, humanities and sciences. The RSC Fellowship is awarded to peer-elected, distinguished individuals who have made substantial contributions in these fields.

The RSC will be honouring Jin-me and the other new Fellows and Members at the RSC’s Celebration of Excellence and Engagement (COEE) at Halifax on November 15 - 18, 2018.
