Work against sexual violence earns Canada Research Chair for UWindsor professor

Charlene Senn’s goal is to empower women.

The University of Windsor professor has devoted her professional life to arming women with the knowledge and tools they need to better protect themselves against sexual violence without limiting their freedom.

And it’s that work that has led to her appointment as the Canada Research Chair in this field of study.

“During my undergraduate degree I really didn’t know what I was going to do and had always thought about careers like medicine or dentistry,” Dr. Senn said.

Researchers use 3D printed toads in the wild

When the rains eventually blanket northwest Costa Rica, ushering in the country’s wet season, a booming chorus of yellow toads will fill the tropical forest.

And the moment that rain starts to fall, UWindsor’s Katrina Switzer will race to a pond in Santa Rosa National Park where she’ll match 3D printed “Robotoads” with unsuspecting mates.

“The Neotropical Yellow Toads have a large breeding event that really only happens once a year during the first massive rainfall,” Switzer explained, adding the rain usually starts falling in the middle of the night.
