  • Profile Question 3
    Do you have advice for students about preparing for a science career?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    In high school I took all three sciences (Physics, Biology, Chemistry) as well as the math classes, so that I wouldn't be lacking any pre-requisites in first year university. In first year you have to take all those classes anyway, and having a broad background in science can help you to narrow down what you're interested in!
