Carleton Faculty Awarded 2016 Capital Educators’ Awards

Carleton University is pleased to announce that three Carleton teachers have been awarded 2016 Capital Educators’ Awards.

The annual awards recognize individuals who have displayed excellence in teaching and have made a significant impact on the lives of their students by acting as positive role models.

The three Carleton winners:

  • Christopher Dieni is an instructor at Carleton’s Institute of Biochemistry, as well as a comparative biochemist and physiologist. Dieni is a research associate in the Storey Lab, where he works to bridge his recent research in nanotoxicology with his earlier research in signal transduction and protein phosphorylation.
  • Martin Geiger is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science. His research, teaching and writings focus on migration and mobility from an interdisciplinary perspective.
  • Nduka Otiono is an assistant professor at Carleton’s Institute of African Studies. His research interests include cultural studies, oral literature, post-colonial studies, media and communication studies, globalization and popular culture.

A community panel of judges selected 18 award recipients from a group of 63 finalists. The winners were announced on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at the annual EduGala event hosted at Algonquin College.
