We accomplish our goal through collaborative work with researchers at varying levels of research experiences. We work with final year undergraduate students (through the final year research projects), undergraduate research interns (second to fourth year students), graduate research assistants (who have completed at least one university degree), postgraduate research students at Masters and PhD levels and more accomplished researchers through cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary research.
