What do you hope to accomplish with your research?
What has winning a major award meant to you?
This award has given me the opportunity to pursue graduate training internationally. For example, this summer I am working with children with attentional problems at a well established and empirically supported summer treatment program in Miami, Florida. Research is about sharing ideas and I am excited by the opportunities that winning a major award has given me to connect with other graduate students and researchers from around the world.
Why did you choose to come to British Columbia and study at UBC?
For you, what was the best surprise about graduate life, about UBC or life in Vancouver?
The best surprise about Vancouver was the ease of using public transit. Having grown up in Calgary, a city where driving is a necessity, it has been eye-opening to experience life without driving every day.
