Osinski of Western University “for his outstanding contributions to Canadian and international earth science research in understanding the role that meteorite impact events have played in shaping the Earth’s geological and potentially biological evolution.” Dr. Osinski is the Principal Investigator of SSERVI’s Canadian team and is also a FINESSE team member. Congratulations from all of us at SSERVI!
