What do you wish you had known when you were in graduate school?

That the ‘story’ is not over when we complete our research study.  Research always prompts further questions.

What information/ advice did you learn in graduate school that has been most influential?

To learn how to accept criticism from your mentors and peers is a fundamental part of being a scientist. The first manuscript rejection is the toughest … it gets easier after that.

Why is being a CSEP Academic Member important to you?

Belonging to an academic society like CSEP keeps you connected with your colleagues, and with CSEP in particular we can see the application of scientific discovery to professional practice.  Our journal is fantastic, and our annual conferences are a wonderful opportunity to connect with graduate students and colleagues from across Canada (and the world).
