Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Western Ontario (Western University) in 2008 and my MSc from Jilin University in 2001.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Hong Kong Baptist University.
