As a veterinarian I will have the opportunity to affect changes in health in communities of animals and people with the skill sets I have learned and built upon throughout my graduate studies. I will be a veterinary epidemiologist specializing in sustainable community health utilizing the approach/philosophy/strategy of One Health - hey, now that's pretty amazing!
The main reason I chose UofG was because of my supervisors and project. I wanted to become an expert in oncolytic virotherapy to positively impact the lives of cancer patients. I also chose to complete my graduate studies at UofG because of the excellent facilities at the Ontario Veterinary College. The new Pathobiology building allows me to conduct my research with state of the art equipment such as our flow cytometer and animal facilities.
After graduation I plan on finding a job in the field of marketing research. UofG not only has equipped me with the tools to be successful in the field, but they have prepared me to be a cut above the rest of the applicants.
At the turn of the 21st century, the environmental protection and climate change mitigation are among our most essential efforts to ensure our survival on the planet. Most development practices have been unsustainable up to now and cannot continue in the same fashion. The atmospheric environment is an important part of the environment we all depend on. At the same time, the atmosphere is so fragile and resource limited. Sustainable development toward the protection of the atmosphere is everyone's responsibility.
Multiphase flow takes place in a wide spectrum of engineering applications such as food production, power generation, water treatment, oil production, water desalination, refrigeration and air conditioning, as well as in carbon capture and sequestration systems. My lab aims at providing reliable solutions for our many industrial problems and new technologies that can make these engineering systems more efficient and sustainable.
One of the things that attracted me to Guelph is how connected the sports community is in this beautiful city. If you play any sport, you can very easily find a team or a place where you can practice and/or compete.
The problems I have worked on in animal science have direct implications for genetic selection, food quality (e.g. cow milk), and animal health. On the other hand, my work in understanding the structure and driving mechanisms of ecological (e.g. plant-pollinator) networks have indirect implications for ecosystem conservation, management, and restoration.
Graduate studies at the University of Guelph is unique because of the vibrant and friendly community environment, the access to outstanding resources and training, and the many opportunities on campus to develop important career and life skills.
