World Economic Forum Young Scientists Class of 2017 celebrates breakthrough talent from across the globe


The World Economic Forum announced its 2017 class of 55 Young Scientists, assembling a distinguished cohort of top talent making an impact on research as diverse as quantum and computer science, physics and materials science, biology and bio-engineering, medical and neuroscience, and energy and environment. Collectively, their research is at the core of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Among the honorees is Natural Resource Science professor and Canada Research Chair in Arctic Ecology Kyle Elliott.

Kyle Elliott is Assistant Professor at McGill University, where he studies Arctic seabirds, what they tell us about climate change, and how we can pursue policies that minimize the impact of climate change on Arctic wildlife. He is focused on providing practical solutions and designing marine policy that benefits wildlife to ensure the sustainability of food, water and environment of Arctic communities.
