Integrated Sciences at UBC
2013

As of 2016 I'm studying Integrated Sciences at UBC (integrating neurobiology, genetics and linguistics). I'm also a Research Assistant at the Sleep/Wake-Behaviours Clinic & Research Lab at B.C. Children's Hospital/Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and I'm collaborating with the Down Syndrome Research Foundation on a major survey project and helping to prepare a report for dissemination to the BC provincial government.

I applied to volunteer at the clinic during the second semester of Science One; I asked James and Chris for advice, and they were both super helpful! I was accepted as a student for the summer following Science One, and I was able to apply the skills I learned from the program to the various projects at the clinic. I've been continuing my research as a lab member since 2014.
