researcher, mother, wife, outdoor lover
I like to think of myself as an enabler of opportunities and experiences of those around me (and myself!).
As a researcher and teacher, I support my students to develop as independent, critical thinkers of timely issues in the software research and practice. As a mother, I enable my kids to grow an open,emphatic mind in the world around them. Whether we travel around the world, or swim in BC's beautiful lakes, I often place them in (challenging) situations that takes them oustide their comfort zone but makes them a bit more resilient in life.
I thus allow myself to embrace a multifaceted life, busy but fullfilling. My active family has been, in fact, the best balance to my busy work life. Happy to share from my experience, and how I continue to enjoy a long term relationship with my family amidst a crazy life.
