Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
It's an interesting way to meet new people, researchers, and professionals while having a challenging, but rewarding learning experience. It's also about acquiring a state of the art expertise to be able to be part of the leading solutions for today's and tomorrow's world issues.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
I decided to study at UBC for several reasons. Firstly, I found a challenging research project tailored to my academic interests. Secondly, UBC is located in the greatest city on the Canadian West Coast, Vancouver, which is probably the best place in Canada for outdoor and adventure enthusiasts. But mostly I was drawn to the prospect of meeting new people, travelling, and living somewhere other than home: my journey has helped understand who I am, where I am from, and where I am going.
