Women’s Day honor: AITs’ Veronique Morin is Canadian Woman of Innovation

Ms. Veronique Morin, a doctoral student of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) has been recognized among “Canadian Women of Innovation” – an initiative of Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation (CSTMC) and Engineers Canada.

“Canadian Women of Innovation” is a virtual exhibition whose opening coincides with International Women’s Day. Ms. Veronique is among the six Canadian women who are highlighted as those who changed the face of science. She finds herself in the company of five other women whose achievements are listed in the timeline zone beginning 1981 onwards.

“The Canadian Women of Innovation virtual exhibition is an excellent testimonial of the great contributions of Canadian women to engineering, and to our lives in general,” said Engineers Canada’s Chief Executive Officer Kim Allen in a press statement released on 6 March 2013. “We are proud to have worked with the Canada Science and Technology Museum to raise Canadians’ awareness of these heroes. They are great models for our young girls to look up to,” Kim Allen added.

Courtesy her background in civil engineering and disaster preparedness, Veronique is credited for “researching the effects that cyclones, flooding, wind and water have on populations.” The citation adds – “Her studies in disaster have taken her to the Caribbean and Southeast Asia, both areas that are very vulnerable to natural disasters. Her research deepens our understanding of the effects of natural disasters on communities.”

Besides highlighting the role of Canadian women changing the world, the portal also highlights Science and Technology milestones and Canadian life.

Ms. Veronique is a doctoral student of Disaster Preparedness Mitigation and Management (DPMM:, an interdisciplinary program between AIT’s School of Environment, Resources and Development (SERD) and School of Engineering and Technology (SET).
