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.


It's #greatsupervisor week at #UBC. Here's a shout-out to my co-supervisor @LeytonSchnell (my 4-yr old refers to him as Fashion Santa); thanks for challenging my thinking and pushing my research forward. I'm looking forward to sharing many learning adventures together!
