Dr. Beauchamp has exceeded any hopes or expectations I had about a PhD supervisor. From day one, Dr. Beauchamp has encouraged me to pursue a line of research that I am truly passionate about. He has created an environment that is the perfect blend--fostering independence, while always providing the time and support we students need to be successful. I can honestly say that there is no way I would have been able to achieve the goals I had for my PhD without him. I feel very grateful for his support and can only hope to pass on what I have learned from him to my future pupils.
