Meet our Mentors
I graduated from University of Waterloo in 2011 with a degree in Computer Science. I have been working as a Software Developer since 2011. I am interested in software performance analysis and previously worked on a Java Just in Time (JIT) Compiler at IBM. I am currently working at Elastic.
Department of Biology
As a graduate student in a plant community ecology lab, I study the light environment of grasslands and species responses to shading. Outside of the lab, I care for one hamster and my growing houseplant collection, and like to explore the great outdoors by foot, snowshoe, canoe, or paddleboard.
Department of Civil Engineering
I completed my BASc in civil engineering at Queen's University and then continued on to a MASc with the Queen's civil department. My research combines coastal and geotechnical engineering to develop a new tool for numerically modelling dam breach failures. I'm excited to be graduating this fall and continuing my work in industry as a Junior Civil Engineer. When I'm not working on my research, I love spending time outdoors or trying new restaurants with my friends!
Department of Neuroscience
I graduated from Queen’s University in 2020 with a degree in the life sciences focusing in molecular biology and genetics. I am currently pursuing a Master’s and PhD doing research in developing gene therapy approaches to treating genetically inherited neurological disorders. I am excited to be entering a brand new filed of pharmaceuticals for treating rare diseases in the future. Outside of the lab, I enjoy going for hikes and cuddling with my dog.
Clinical Trials Monitor
Canadian Cancer Trials Group
I am a clinical trials monitor ensuring protocol compliance of phase III cancer clinical trials (breast, glioblastoma and prostate). I obtained a Ph.D in Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (Queen's University) and a B.Sc. in Life Sciences specializing in Drug Development and Human Toxicology. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors by running and hiking and I also love painting and gaming!
Department of Biomedical and Molecule Science
I recently graduated from Queen’s University with a BHSc in Life Sciences and am currently pursuing a Master’s in Reproduction and Developmental sciences at Queen’s. I am passionate about studying the placenta and its role in maternal and fetal health. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy hiking, cooking and drawing.
Department of Biology
As a graduate student in the Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Laboratory (PEARL), I study the impact of human disturbances and climate warming to lakes along the Rideau Canal waterway over a ~250 year time span. Outside of the lab, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, and spending time with friends!
Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences
I am a PhD student in Experimental Medicine studying components of blood plasma and how they have the potential to impact stem cells. I have always loved sciences and am excited to tell you guys more about my transition from high school to University.
