I am a Master's student in the Computer Science department. I started the DFP program in September 2020. Previously, I obtained a BSc in Biology (genetics focus) from UBC. I enjoyed studying biology and worked in a lab that studied Arabidopsis (plant genetics). However, after more exploration of my interests, I pursued a BSc in Computer Science from SFU. During my time at SFU, I got introduced to research in neuroscience and had the opportunity to apply my technical skills in a meaningful way. As I was involved with designing and developing software for various users, I realized the benefits of leverging the power of machines in health technologies. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, exploring new places and watching documentaries about random topics (mostly nature). One of my accomplishments is co-founding UniLink in 2013, which is a non-profit with the goal of introducing various research fields and university degrees to high school students.
