Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus Barry Lever elected Fellow of The Royal Society of Canada
Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus A.B.P. (Barry) Lever from the Department of Chemistry has been elected as a Fellow of The Royal Society of Canada (RSC). The RSC fellowship is the highest honour a Canadian scholar can receive and is awarded to those who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement.
Lever has received this prestigious acclaim for his research and developments on physical and inorganic chemistry, which includes establishing an important synergism between electrochemistry and spectroscopy. His accomplishments span over five decades, and notably include writing books on electronic spectroscopy, which have been used by many scientists across generations, and publishing some 300 research articles, making him one of the most cited chemists in Canada.
The 2015 Fellows will be inducted into the RSC at the Induction and Awards Ceremony on November 27th, 2015 in Victoria, BC.
“Our warmest congratulations to Barry on this wonderful recognition,” says Faculty of Science Dean Ray Jayawardhana. “It is yet more testament to his tremendous accomplishments and impact as a scientist. We are delighted and honored to count a researcher of his calibre as a colleague in the Faculty of Science.”
Professor Lever’s other awards include the Canadian Society for Chemistry’s (CSC) 2014 E.W.R Steacie Award, the Killam Foundation Fellowship, Linstead Award and the CSC Alcan Award.
