Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I wanted to pursue a topic I find very interesting and believe is socially valuable to the highest degree of rigour. A graduate degree gives me the freedom to do this and the opportunity to work closely with, and learn from, experts in my area of interest.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
I came to UBC to work with my supervisor, who specializes in my area of interest. It didn't hurt that the campus at UBC is beautiful and Vancouver is a great city.
