Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I decided to pursue a graduate degree because I felt that it would enable me to pursue the topics in science that I am most passionate about: human genetics and disease. I had spent my undergraduate degree learning the basic principles of science, but now I want to apply that knowledge and investigate intriguing and currently unanswered scientific questions.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
I decided to study at UBC because it is a world-class institute that is still near to my hometown of Victoria.
