Stream of study: Co-op
Career goal: Finish a PhD and work with our collaborators at Pfizer.
Favourite food: Steak and baked potato
How I get involved: I've been a part of the ambassador team since 2013, and served as Chem club president from 2015-2016. During my undergrad and currently as a grad student, I'm a teaching assistant for multiple organic chemistry courses!
Why I love my program
Something you might not know is that I started out in Biomedical Science, and was dead set on becoming a pharmacist. However, I quickly realized that I loved doing research and working in synthesis. When I found out that I combine both of those with the Medicinal Chemistry program, the switch was an obvious one!
Why University of Waterloo?
Co-op was a huge selling point for me, especially since I'm currently working as a graduate student in one of the labs I worked in as my co-op during undergrad.
