Welcome to the website and blog of Dr. Daniel Gillis, Assistant Professor and Statistician in the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph, Co-founder of Farm To Fork, Co-creator of the Ideas Congress (ICON) Transdisciplinary Classroom, and Director of the Physical Science & Engineering Education Research Centre.
Last week I attended two conferences in Vancouver; the Community University Expo, and the Canadian Evaluation Society’s Annual Meeting. Both were engaging and inspiring and offered me a chance to chat about some of the work I’ve been doing with a broader scientific and research community.

On Wednesday I was honoured to stand alongside Yousr El Sharawy, and Paul Mesman to accept the 2017 Faculty William Winegard Exemplary Volunteer Award. Since then I’ve had numerous people stop me in the halls to congratulate me on what they say was a well-deserved recognition. To say that it has been an extremely humbling experience is a bit of an understatement.
Tonight the University of Guelph hosted their annual Student Life Awards. The event honours students, staff, faculty, and community partners who work to make a difference to the student experience at the University of Guelph.
