The following is a list of some non-research highlights from my CV.
MSc. in Theoretical Physics – PSI
From August 2018 to June 2019 I was a graduate student at the Perimeter Institute for the Theoretical Physics as part of the Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) graduate program. My thesis, Orbifolds, Anomalies, and Topological Field Theories, was supervised by Davide Gaiotto and classified the structure of orbifolds of bosonic theories with discrete abelian symmetries.
HBSc. Mathematics with Physics Minor
In 2017, after 4 long years, I graduated with my Honours Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Lakehead University, with a minor in physics and a 99% average.
While at Lakehead, I had the opportunity to take a number of core math and physics courses, including upper level courses in abstract algebra, representation theory, real and complex analysis, differential geometry, quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, and electromagnetism. I also spent time as a member of the Math Club, and as a student union representative on the Lakehead University Senate and the Lakehead University Academic Appeals Committee.
My thesis, Representation Theory and Quantum Mechanics, was supervised by Andrew J. Dean and was a literature review developing quantum mechanics following the work of George Mackey and introducing some of the results played by group representations in physics. It was by far the best course I took in university, drawing on almost every previous course I’d taken in some way.
Governor General’s Academic Medal
When I graduated from Lakehead I was honoured to receive the Governor General’s Academic Silver Medal for graduating with the highest average in an Honours Bachelor degree in my university. I was also awarded the Dean’s Medal for the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies and the Dean’s Scholar Award for Mathematics, for graduating with the highest average in the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies and the Mathematics Department respectively.
Scholarships and Awards
Throughout my undergraduate degree I had the privilege to receive financial assistance and awards from various public and private organizations which are listed in my full CV. In addition to the NSERC USRAs I was awarded, one very important award for me was the Lakehead University Presidential Scholarship, which is awarded to two entering students at Lakehead University each year for contributions to their community and academic merit. Another important award was the C.D. Howe Scholarship Endowment Fund which is awarded to a student (from the Thunder Bay region) for academic achievement, community involvement, and extracurricular activities. These were awarded to me as an entering student and completely changed how I approached university.
