Student Profile: Amelinda Firdauzy
Biological Sciences master's student in the Faculty of Science
Hello! My name is Amelinda Firdauzy - I usually go by my last name Firdauzy. I use she/her pronouns. I graduated from McMaster University and I'm currently doing my research in neural stem cells under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Julian. On my free time, I love working out and play the guitar!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
I decided to pursue my masters degree at SFU because I wanted to study outside of Ontario.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
My family does not have a great science background so I would always describe it to them as learning the "cells of the brain" essentially.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
I enjoy learning about the various strategies to achieve pluripotent stem cells in vitro, as well as different kinds of experiment to determine stem cell fate decisions.
