Why did you apply for the Master of Land and Water Systems?

I am interested in water sustainability, particularly in groundwater protection and remediation. Also, I love the idea of a program with an integrated, systems approach. I am excited to learn about soils and to understand the integration of ecological cycles and the impacts of human activity, while also learning new skills to solve real land and water resource issues. On top of all that, developing professional communication skills will help me communicate what I learn in an effective way.

What are you most excited about learning in the MLWS program?

Developing analytical frameworks for the identification, articulation and analysis of land and water resource issues and concerns.

What are some of your favourite hobbies?

I love reading, cooking and being in nature.
