Science

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

"Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it." ~Confucius

What is a little known fact about yourself?

My love for the physical world was perhaps first expressed when I was two. Upon going out in the morning, I would pick a blade of grass and not let go of it all day until I returned home in the evening.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I have a mind of science, creativity, and imagination. I believe this type of thinking is key to engineering a better future for everyone.
