I completed my undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics at SFU last year and I'm continuing on with a Master's in Physics. The design aspects of engineering as well as the research opportunities in physics have both always been appealing to me so I'm excited to have the chance to bring both these interests together.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I chose to come to SFU because of the project opportunities available here. Being able to mix engineering design work with interesting physics applications was important to me and I was able to find very interesting work at SFU.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

In my research, I work towards developing instrumentation for detecting illusive particles that we can use to expand our insights about the universe.
