UBC Students (currently enrolled)

1. UBC Undergraduate Students

Undergrads can do research in my group in various capacities. I am always looking for talented undergrads to do research in my group. Feel free to reach out to me with your CV and transcript, and if you're suitable for our ongoing projects we can chat more.
These are the standard opportunities that always exist:

b. CPEN/ELEC 499: Undergraduate Thesis
Beyond these, depending on the time of the year there are additional opportunities available for your involvement in USRA, Capstone project, etc. I will do my best to keep this page updated, but feel free to reach out to me regardless.

Feel free to knock on my door (physically, or virtually through an email) to brainstorm ideas. Our team is always open to collaborations. Additionally, co-supervision may be possible even if your home department is not ECE.
