I am a PhD international student in the Human Health and Nutritional Sciences program at the University of Guelph. My research project focuses on the dietary regulation of the enzymes involved in the endogenous synthesis of omega-3. As a volunteer in the S2BN Guelph chapter, I look forward to organizing events that facilitate communication between students and the industry. I am excited to meet other graduate students with similar interests to mine, as well as industry professionals.

I am an MSc student in the department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences studying cardiorespiratory physiology. My research focuses on how the pulmonary system is affected by a heart attack. I am excited to be a part of S2BN to help fellow graduate students explore novel and innovating careers outside of academia and build translational skills that are valuble in industry!
I am a MSc student in the Human Health and Nutritional Sciences program at the University of Guelph. My research focuses on the metabolic relevance of omega-3 fatty acids.

Social Outreach Coordinator
I am a PhD student in the department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Guelph. My research explores the impact of ovarian and pancreatic cancer on heart function. As part of S2BN, I look forward to assisting fellow graduate students in developing important connections with industry professionals as well as broadening their understanding of diverse career paths in industry!
I am an MSc. student in the Human Health and Nutritional Sciences program at the University of Guelph. My research investigates the hormonal regulation of fat use in muscle, and how this process becomes disrupted with prolonged bouts of sedentary behaviour. During my time with S2BN, I hope to help coordinate events that connect graduate students to skill-building and networking opportunities that will allow them to suceed in both academic and professional roles! I am looking forward to developing my own skills through these events, as well as connecting with industry professionals and fellow graduate students!
