2016 Award Recipient Dr. Derek Harnett

 Associate Professor, Physics

 Harnett's research explores things we can't see and that might not exist.

 And it's vital.

 A world-recognized expert in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) sum-rule methods, Harnett's work isn't easily understood by the layperson, but it's heralded within the physics community. His  research - fuelled by insatiable curiosity and funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada - paved his way to receiving UFV's 2016 Research Excellence Award.
