“During my time at Ryerson, my supervisor supported me in becoming the resourceful researcher that I am today. I cultivated important skills like leadership, scientific curiosity and out-of-the-box thinking — all of which have extended out from the lab, and built a strong foundation with countless opportunities. After graduation, I was hired at Public Health Ontario and am now applying my skills in clinical diagnostics and genomic surveillance on COVID-19.”
