Undergraduate Research at SFU

Performing research has enriched my learning experience in the degree by providing different perspectives of how the theories learned from courses are applied in research fields. I was able to hone my critical thinking and problem-solving skills by designing experiments and exchanging ideas with other graduate students. I also had the opportunity to be trained on instruments and programs used for characterizing and solving molecular structures, which are valuable skillsets for pursuing post-graduate studies.
