Faculty of Science Dean’s Seminar Series presents The Honourable Rosa Galvez, Canadian Senator NOV 12

The Faculty of Science is pleased to present The Honourable Rosa Galvez, independent Canadian Senator for Quebec.

Rosa Galvez, originally from Peru, is one of Canada’s leading experts in pollution control and its effect on human health. She developed an interest in finding solutions to pollution and studied civil engineering. Her path led her to Canada where she completed her PhD and became a professor at Université Laval in Quebec. Passionate about the diffusion of knowledge and the inclusion of science in decision-making, she decided to bring her wealth of knowledge to the Senate of Canada where she now has a direct impact on legislation. Senator Galvez focuses much of her parliamentary work on issues such as climate change, social inequalities, sustainable finance and economy, and environmental legislation. Since her appointment to the Senate in 2016, she hopes to act as a bridge between science and decision-making.

Parliament needs science, and you can help make that happen!
