Our Team

Dr. Valerie Davidson, PhD, P.Eng.


My name is Valerie Davidson and I am the NSERC/RIM Chair for Women in Science and Engineering - Ontario (CWSE-ON). My team works to increase the participation of women of all ages in science and engineering. 

I am a professional engineer and a professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph. I manage and conduct research on food and biological engineering.

To learn more about me and CWSE-ON, take a look at this article, explore our website or contact myself or my team. We would be happy to talk to you and are always looking for individuals interested in getting involved.

Sincerely, Val Davidson
