Meet our Student Representatives for 2019-2020


Degree: Ph.D. 

About: I completed my undergraduate degree at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. Upon graduation, I worked for a year at the National Institute of Drug Abuse as a post-baccalaureate fellow. Beginning in Fall 2017, I started my Ph.D. studies in the IPN Rotation program. I am currently working on biomarker discovery with a focus on neurodevelopmental molecules that could be used to predict psychopathology vulnerability. 


Degree: Ph.D. 

About: I am currently a Ph.D. student in the IPN Rotation Program. I obtained my Bachelor of Science from the Indian Institute of Science in India. I majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. At McGill, I have had the opportunity to rotate in labs at different IPN-affiliated research sites, such as the Douglas Hospital, Department of Psychology, and the Montreal Neurological Institute. 


Degree: Ph.D. 

About: I am from a small town in the interior of British Columbia, and I did a B.Sc. in cellular biology at the University of Calgary. I ended up in the IPN, because I was interested in doing cellular neuroscience. Since starting my graduate studies, I've also been involved in our student association, GSAN, through which I've met many other students in the IPN. My hobbies include reading, writing and drawing, running, cycling, music and climbing.
