BPK Aerospace Physiology Laboratory doctoral student in the Faculty of Science

I have a passion for Bioastronautics and assisting humanity to become a space-faring species 🚀. I am a BPK Aerospace Physiology Ph.D. student at Simon Fraser University, working as a Research Assistant with Dr. Andrew Blaber 🎓. I have co-authored a physiology paper, volunteered for various student organizations and won numerous awards and recognitions, and presented a student project at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’s 2021 Student Regional Conference. My ultimate goal is to assist astronaut crews to withstand the physiological effects of space as they explore deeper into (and beyond) our solar system 🚀. I am a practicing Functional Capacity Evaluator/Kinesiologist, who enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, socializing with friends, and caring for my Labradoodle, Ebony 💕
