Kim Matheson appointed Acting Vice-President (Research and International)

Samy Mahmoud, Carleton University President and Vice-Chancellor pro tempore, is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Kim Matheson as Acting Vice-President (Research and International), which took effect March 1.

Matheson joined the Department of Psychology at Carleton University in 1990 as a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Canada Research Fellow, and was promoted to Full Professor in 2003. She is a highly accomplished researcher and graduate supervisor, having published more than 100 conference presentations and refereed papers.

Her research spans a wide range of issues in the social and health sciences, as well as public policy. She is one of the few researchers to have been funded by all three major funding agencies: SSHRC, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

Matheson is a member of Carleton’s Institute of Neuroscience, which conducts research on the neural mechanisms behind depression, seizures, and stress-related diseases. She is also active in Carleton’s Social Diversity Lab, which focuses on the role of social support in group members’ sense of self-worth, and in the development of norms for how group members should think and behave.

Matheson also has considerable administrative experience at the departmental, faculty and university levels. As the chair of the Department of Psychology from 1997 until 2003, she presided over the largest academic unit at the University. She has served for two terms on the University Senate, is currently Secretary of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Faculty Board, and a member of the Task Force on Planning and Priorities. She received her PhD in 1998 from the University of Waterloo and is a Carleton alumna (BAHons/82, MA/83).
