"SFU is accredited as a phenomenal university. The ability to study under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Blaber, and be a member of this esteemed university was an amazing opportunity."
Student Profile: Catherine Taylor
BPK Aerospace Physiology Laboratory doctoral student in the Faculty of Science
I am a Ph.D. student in Dr. Andrew Blaber's Aerospace Physiology Laboratory. I have a passion for bioastronautics and assisting humanity to become a space-faring species. 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 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' 2021 Student Regional Conference. I am a practicing Functional Capacity Evaluator/Kinesiologist, who enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, socializing with friends, and caring for my Labradoodle, Ebony.
