WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
It's quiet up on the mountain.

Instead of going into the details, I would use pictures and simple equations to give a rough intuition.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
I'm studying a subject that been my favorite ever since high school. I enjoy it the the extent where I've taken part in competitions (CNML, Putnam, etc.).
