Graduate Student


I completed my BSc. In 2013, majoring in Biology with a Plant Specialization and a minor in Earth Science at the University of Waterloo. In 2014, I started as an MSc. student at the university of Guelph, and I'm now working on finishing my degree. The focus of my project is propagation and preservation of Cherry Birch (Betula lenta L.). I am using methods such as micropagatin and cryopreservation to achieve this. During my free time, I explore my artistic side by sewing, drawing, singing, or playing guitar.
