What’s your background?
I grew up in Vaughan, and graduated from the University of Western Ontario where I completed my undergraduate degree in medical sciences. I have returned home to complete my MSc in Toronto.
Prior to beginning university I decided that I would pursue a career in science because it provides you with an active learning environment where we can study life and the world we live in. Specifically, scientific research allows us to ask and answer questions, and work together in scientific community to become resourceful and directly apply what we learn.
Do you have any advice for someone interested in a career in research?
I recommend that students continue to ask questions throughout their undergrad, approach professors, and begin applying to labs as early as possible. Basic skills and techniques can be taught early on and build a foundation for you to confidently continue to apply yourself for your future career.
What do you like to do for leisure?
I enjoy reading, watching movies, and cooking in my spare time. I especially love to cook and bake because it is something I can do and share with my family and friends.
Any song or book recommendations?
The Better Brain Solution by Dr. Steven Masley
