What was a highlight or favourite moment from your time at SFU?
The biggest highlight from my time at SFU has been getting to know the closely-knit research community through engineering science’s graduate school. I think we have some of the friendliest professors and grad students around, and I’ve built friendships with peers and seniors that will certainly last into the future.
How has your experience at SFU prepared you for your career path?
My career path has been a tumultuous one. I’m honestly making it up as I go, but the interdisciplinary nature of SFU’s programs has made navigating that path a lot easier. The opportunities I received through SFU, like working at Vancouver General Hospital as a biomedical engineer, have given me a well-rounded education that I feel has prepared me for whatever the future holds.
What advice would you like to share to students in their first year?
Things will almost never go according to your plans, so don’t stress too much when they don’t. It’s easier and more fulfilling to just ride the wave.
What are your current plans?
I’m blessed to say that I received admission and a full-ride scholarship to University College London’s PhD program in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. I’ll be moving to London, UK in September! I’m extremely excited for the move, and so grateful to my friends and colleagues at SFU who helped me get to this point.
