I am a PhD student in Kinesiology studying Biomechanics, with a focus on furthering our understanding of mechanisms related to the development of low back pain. It is my goal to take my research and effect change through modifications in workplace design and lifestyle.
I am passionate about representing graduate students here at Waterloo. I have sat on my departmental executive council (KGSA) as GSA representative and as the president of the KGSA. These experiences have offered me great insight into administrative processes and, more importantly, the needs of the graduate students. As KGSA President, we made a concerted effort to create a better community by getting the highest turnout in years to our events and conducting a comprehensive survey to explore financial, academic, and social needs. I believe in a transparent government and data-driven improvements. I look forward to serving Waterloo graduates and working hard to improve their experience.
