Great Supervisor Week Mentions

Each year graduate students are encouraged to give kudos to their supervisors through social media and our website as part of #GreatSupervisorWeek. Below are students who mentioned this supervisor since the initiative was started in 2017.


I'm one lucky #phd student to have TWO amazing supervisors who are equally kind, fiercely intelligent AND fun. @NRamankutty @HWittmanUBC my only complaint is how much you debate when we meet (just kidding, it’s great) #DoubleTrouble #greatsupervisor @IRES_UBC @ubcfarm @LiuInstituteUBC


Giving a shout out to @HWittmanUBC at @IRES_UBC @ubcfarm for being a #GreatSupervisor throughout my time at @ubc -- equally formidable behind a computer, in front of a crowd, or even sampling soil (who knew!?).
