Sybil Seitzinger - honorary doctorate from Utrecht University

Congratulations to Environmental Studies Professor and PICS executive director, Dr. Sybil Seitzinger, on receiving an honorary doctorate from Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

Dr. Seitzinger was one of four recipients of honorary doctorates at an awards ceremony held in the Domkerk cathedral on March 29.  The university said the doctorate has been given in recognition of Dr. Seitzinger’s research into the causes and consequences of climate change, in particular on life in coastal waters and freshwater.

Prior to joining PICS and the University of Victoria as a Professor in November 2015, Sybil Seitzinger was for many years the director of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which focuses on climate change.
