CIC Fellowship is a senior class of membership that recognizes the merits of CIC members who have made outstanding contributions across multiple areas:

  • Scientific, Engineering and Technical Contributions
  • CIC, CSC, CSChE Service
  • Management of Science, Engineering or Technology
  • Teaching, Mentorship, and Public Awareness

In general, candidates have made contributions in all four areas with outstanding contributions in a subset. Nominations are made by the CIC membership, either individually or by Local Sections and Subject Divisions. Nominations for CIC fellowships are completed by filling in the FCIC Nomination Form and sending it to the awards team at awards@cheminst.ca. Nominations are reviewed by the CIC Fellowship Committee, a four-member committee of peers, that makes recommendations to the CIC Board for approval. New Fellows are announced and certificates are presented at an awards ceremony held in conjunction with annual conference of the Canadian Society for Chemistry or at the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering.

Daniela Loock contributes to the chemical characterization, environmental assessment and monitoring of field sites in remote locations, from the Canadian Arctic to Iceland and the deep Pacific Ocean. She facilitates many collaborations between academic scientists, private sector companies, government agencies (including military), and Indigenous groups to improve our understanding of the environment at these sites. She is currently the Director of Corporate Services at Ocean Networks Canada, a major science initiative of the University of Victoria, where she leads ONC’s Corporate Operations, Communications, and Learning & Community Engagement divisions. Until 2020, Daniela was the Associate Director of the Environmental Sciences Group at the Royal Military College where she co-published over 375 scientific contributions, many as public reports to government agencies and policy recommendations. She was awarded the RMC Commandant Coin of Excellence. She served as Treasurer, Chair and Past Chair of the Environment Division of the CIC (2008 – 2014). Daniela holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering Chemistry from the Technical University Darmstadt in Germany and completed a PhD in Chemistry with T.M. Fyles at the University of Victoria, followed by a postdoctoral year at McGill University with R.B. Lennox.

Stephanie earned her PhD at Virginia Tech University and completed her Post doctoral research at Queen’s University before starting her independent academic career at Cape Breton University in 2009. She is celebrated for her pioneering work in biomass conversion and innovative biochar applications. Her dedication to mentorship bridges research, teaching, and outreach. She’s a leading advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Chemistry in Canada and champions policies benefiting marginalized and under-represented groups. Her work within the CSC and CIC is extensive resulting in measurable changes making Chemistry in Canada a more inclusive and diverse community. As one of three inaugural NSERC Chair for Inclusion in Science and Engineering in the Atlantic Region she will lead systematic change in rural and remote areas. She is a Science Champion, her outreach programs are impressive and far reaching.

Kimberley McAuley, FCIC
Queen’s University
 
Website

Kim McAuley is Professor of Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University with a PhD from McMaster University and BASc from University of Waterloo. She is an international leader in development of first-principles models. Kim McAuley develops practical statistical methods for combining models with data, leading to reliable models for process scale-up, optimization, and control.  Her techniques are widely used by academic and industrial researchers. Collaborating with medical physicists at Canadian and international cancer clinics, McAuley used her modelling and statistical expertise to advance the field of radiation dosimetry. She developed models of temporal and spatial instability and designed new dosimeter recipes used worldwide that improve accuracy and chemical safety of cancer radiotherapy. Kim McAuley serves on the Board of Directors for International Society for Chemical Reaction Engineering and International Advisory Boards for three journals. She was Associate Editor for the Chemical Engineering Journal. She received the DG Fisher Award from the Systems & Control Division of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering, a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal from the Government of Canada, a MITACS Mentorship Award of Excellence, and a Queen’s University’s Award for Excellence in Graduate Supervision. She is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering.

Adrian Pierorazio, FCIC
Jensen Hughes
 


Adrian is a senior director with Jensen Hughes. He brings almost three decades of experience in process safety management (PSM) in its many aspects with a focus on explosion modeling. Adrian has worked as a consultant most of his career, working on 5 continents in various roles such as incident investigation, PSM consulting, methodology development, stakeholder and regulatory support, and training. He has also spent 5 years as a government researcher and had contract as an internal consultant with utility power generation, working with thermal and nuclear power plants. Adrian has published widely in peer-reviewed journals, conference papers and journal articles., and was one of the lead authors for the Center for Chemical process Safety (CCPS) handbook on explosion modelling, the ASM Handbook, and has contributed to several others.

Website

Lisa Rosenberg leads a focused, dynamic research group that is internationally renowned for transformative insights in mechanistic organometallic chemistry and main group catalysis. She obtained her B.Sc. (Hons.) from Memorial University of Newfoundland, where she carried out research in the group of Laurie Thompson. She obtained her Ph.D. from UBC under the supervision of Mike Fryzuk, then held two postdoctoral positions at the LCC du CNRS in Toulouse, France (Jean-Jacques Brunet, Denis Neibecker) and at the University of Iowa (Rich Jordan). She began her independent career at the University of Manitoba, then moved to the University of Victoria, where she is now Professor. Lisa’s long-standing reputation as a community builder stems from national roles in the CSC Inorganic Division spanning two decades (including Chair, 2008-2010), and Canada-wide impact as founding Chair of the Division’s Inorganic Chemistry Exchange (ICE) program. Lisa has fostered student-centered forums for the dissemination and discussion of research throughout her career and has been recognized for excellence in research-enriched teaching. She was a member of the NSERC Discovery Grant Chemistry Evaluation group, serving as Co-Chair for the 2021 and 2022 competitions; in 2021 she was appointed to the multidisciplinary NSERC Joint Prizes Selection Committee.
