What are you doing now and how does your engineering education from Waterloo help with your life today?
I'm currently doing a master's degree in Medical Soft Robots. UW's undergrad provided me sufficient breadth to comfortably tackle problems in fields which I have limited background.

Why did you decide to be a part of REAC?
During undergrad, working with peers in conferences, the Velocity Residence, student design teams, and hackathons were some of my fondest memories. I think REAC provides a means to connect with those like-minded community builders beyond Waterloo.

What is a favourite piece of advice or quote that you would be interested in sharing?
“I like getting older. I feel like I’m finally aging into my personality.” – Nick Miller

What was your favourite place to eat at in Waterloo?
Pita Factory Greek Platter: Enough Greek salad, rice, fries and gyro meat for 2 meals.

What are your plans for the near future?
Finish up the master's; plan for what's next! Also try out new recipes from this French cookbook I got recently!

Finally, do you have any fun and/or interesting media recommendations? Could be a book, song, movie, documentary, videogame, etc.
Brooklyn Duo does Cello and Piano covers of mainstream songs--check them out!
