What is your favourite inspirational quote?


“There are only two things you can do in life: lead society or let society lead you” – My Dad


What is a little known fact about you?


If I am not working at the lab or at home reading research articles, I will be in my basement playing jazz tunes on my alto saxophone.


Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


As a leader, I have been able to inspire others never to succumb to their weaknesses and to instill in them the vision that together everyone can create meaningful change in the community. Whether it be working at the lab or inspiring curious young students, I truly believe that there is no concept too complex or problem too hard for anyone of any age to tackle. In the end, my goal is not only to seek knowledge but promote the spread of that knowledge through  sharing and teaching.
