Chair

My fascination with bioengineering began with prosthetics, but I've since developed interests in areas like biomaterials, bio-inspired designs and medical imaging. Learning about the world-class research here in Toronto has been inspirational. I hope that BESt will provide opportunities for you to do the same!

Our exec team consists of students from various disciplines. Each of us has our own unique reasons for our fascination with Bioengineering, as well as areas that each of us is particularly interested in. We look forward to an exciting year with Bioengineering and YOU!

VP Marketing and Advertising

I am interested in pursuing a career in medicine and being in biomedical engineering allows me to integrate biology and the more mechanical, hands-on aspect of engineering together. Doing research in biomedical engineering over the summer was a fun experience and helped to solidify my career choice.
