What is your favourite place on campus?
The spot that I find most inspiring is our Centre for Advanced Medical Simulation in CAT. This space demonstrates the power of hands-on learning, where students can practice real-world scenarios through simulation and interactive learning.

What is your favourite/most inspiring quote?
“Those who think they can and those who think they can't are both right."
This quote helps me remember that we always have a choice in what mindset we adopt. We can be optimistic or pessimistic – the choice is up to us.

Is there anything people would be surprised to learn about you?
I still play hockey with the same group of friends I met shortly after university. Many players have come and gone over the years but the core group has stayed together for over 25 years.
