Year: 1 (Graduate Studies)
Stream of study: Co-op
Career goal: I am currently pursuing my graduate studies in a microbial ecology lab looking at skin microbiomes. Whether this is something I wish to continue forever, I am not sure, but the university environment is one I have come to grow fond of. I enjoy learning and pursuing obscure interests and speaking with others about their passions, whatever they might be.
Eventually, I think I would enjoy a career that combines physical labour, travel, and science. So something like a field technician, technical operations coordinator, or science coordinator for field research would be very rewarding. Ultimately I want to find a career with a good work/life balance that compensates me well!
Favourite food: Deep fried Mars bars
How I get involved: I have involved myself in Science Outreach and their Let's Talk Science program, as well as orientation, various research positions, and science clubs activities. I am also a one-time member of the renowned Cheese Club.
