Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?

I always wanted to be either a hockey player or a scientist. After high school I took a year off to just play hockey but found I missed learning too much, so I went to university and found I really enjoy research. I decided to pursue a graduate degree in order to continue performing research and start a career in research.

Why did you decide to study at UBC?

There is a fairly long and complicated story as to why and how I came to UBC. In short, got my BSc from a relatively small university and wanted to find a school with a focus on research excellence where I would be well supported in my graduate studies. While looking at UBC, I found an opportunity to continue some of the research I had been doing in my undergrad, so I came here.
